Pollinator Sanctuary Sign for your group

We have a number of communities who have come to us expressing their desire to turn their space into a Biological Pollinator Sanctuary. You can get an idea of what is entailed in becoming such a sanctuary in the brochure above. We have a tool in development that will go more into depth about the many regenerative actions you can take - keep an eye out for that. If you are keen to join The Great Pollinator Patchwork as a group, we welcome you to contact us and we will help you and present you with this sign you can proudly display.
