Default Pollination film starring bats, hummingbirds, bees, and butterflies

Have you ever thought of pollination as a topic that can ring you out emotionally? This amazing film will do it - you have my guarantee. If you watch nothing else today, catch this film clip:

Wow!

Thank you both. I may share that with the club I'm doing at the deaf school.

Beautiful visuals.

LOL!

I guess you could say that. I have been for the past 17+ years.

I'm an interpreter, and Jeff is deaf. We communicate by ASL (American Sign Language).

I knew about Jeffs impairment, You already know how to sign... WOW, That's wonderful!
Are you creating a nature orientated entertainment of some sort for this club (at the deaf school) you're talking about?

I had about 2 years of signing under my belt when I met him. I'm much better now.

The club started with a vegetable garden--that was the idea of the guy in charge...He knows I'm interested in native plants and attracting wildlife...so, I'd like to combine it all. He wants me to do something with composting and organic gardening. So, talking about birds, bugs, and spiders to help control pests of the vegetable garden seems like a good lead in...as well as talk of pollinators.

I'd love to plant a butterfly garden and put up bluebird houses. Eventually, I'd love to have a wildflower trail as well.

A Pioneer garden incorporates the original herbs and veggies our ancestors had planted.
It takes some research to get the correct plants once used but by doing so, you also learn the hows and whys they were chosen.
Herbal remedies, tinctures and the sort.
