Toronto Pollinator Protection Strategy

By Mia Fortino

Edible gardens, parks, campsites – summer is here! As we soak up the sun in these outdoor spaces, it's important to keep in mind how they came to be so picturesque (and, in the case of edible gardens, delicious). 

This yumminess and beauty is thanks to the hundreds of species of pollinators that call Toronto home!  Pollinators, like bees and butterflies, provide much of the food we eat and landscapes we enjoy through pollination.  Bees alone provide every third bite of food that we eat!
