Marilyn Jones & Julia Vanatta
Pesticides have become the quick fix to address various farming and gardening problems. Pollinator Revival co-founders, Marilyn Jones and Julia Vanatta, will share a bit of the history of pesticides along with safer options for pest control. They will also illustrate how we, as gardeners and landscape professionals, can help populations of pollinators and other beneficial insects recover by making simple changes to how we maintain our landscapes.
