The Pollinator Project

Every yard is an opportunity to protect and save the world's pollinators.

Microflora's goal is quite simple: to make compost and do good things with it. This as a win-win that aims to take on two problems: diverting compostable waste from the landfill to the garden, and using the compost to expand pollinator habitats in our community. 

The Pollinator Project aims to build partnerships in our community and encourage people to devote an area of their yard to become a pollinator habitat.

Microflora will contribute compost, network to source seeds and design a diverse garden that uses mostly native blooms. We will come plant your garden with you, give you guidance to do it on your own, or even do it all for you. We will get all planted pollinator gardens registered to "Bee Counted" within the Million Pollinator Project. We will also encourage pollinator participants to take steps to get their garden certified as a National Wildlife Habitat.

The Million Pollinator Garden Challenge (MPGC) is a nationwide call to action to preserve and create gardens and landscapes that help revive the health of bees, butterflies, birds, bats and other pollinators across America. We will move millions of individuals, kids and families outdoors and make a connection between pollinators and the healthy food people eat.
