June 1st kicks off National Pollinator Month. It’s a great time to learn more about pollinators like the famed honey bee. It’s also time that we show these hard-working pollinators a little respect. After all, one mouthful in three of the foods you eat depends on pollination by honey bees, according to the USDA.
This year, RAFI will celebrate 18 years of serving small and mid-scale family farmers across NC through our grant program. To kick-off a new round of grant-making through our Agricultural Reinvestment Fund, we’ve organized a farm tour with two of our current grantees on Wednesday, November 5, 2014 from 1 to 3 pm.
