What is it about?

This is a joint project of Ecopil and Marymount Connect which aims to raise awareness of the importance of pollinators through the realization of 5 specialized gardens for them.

In each garden there will be specific flora for both diurnal pollinators (bees, butterflies, beetles, hummingbirds, etc.) and nocturnal pollinators (mainly bats and moths) to approach. We want to provide them with a safe space so that they can approach and have a safe source of food, this naturally promotes the pollination of more flowers around, causing an increase in the biodiversity of each area, as well as strengthening food security , conservation of wooded areas, health and in general, life .

.

The five gardens will take place in Huichapan (Hidalgo), Apaxco and Naucalpan in the State of Mexico and in the state of Morelos we will focus on Temixco and Colegio Marymount Campus Cuernavaca.

How will we do it?

In order to implement it, we need your help. First we need to prepare the land, then design and plan, to finally implement the pollinator garden with flowers in the region. But that's not all, they will be maintained for a full year , in addition to being an accessible center for more people (neighbors and / or students) to learn about pollinators and the type of plant they pollinate to promote it in their homes and with This will create a network of pollinators for life .

.

Each pollinator garden will be a training center for citizen science… but what is citizen science and what is it for? It is a way of bringing science to people through platforms for its registration, because from our phones we can make species registrations that are used for scientific studies. Therefore, with each garden as a training center, workshops will be offered around pollinators and their monitoring through citizen science as we want to reach more and more people.
