No Mow May

Illustrated by Sarah Pullen

Did you know...

1 in 3 bites of food is dependent on pollinators?

Insects and their food supply go through an important part of their life cycle during the month of May. Insects such as bees, butterflies and ants are busy pollinating, building the base for the crops and plants of the year. Those dandelions are providing an important service!

What can you do to help?
You can play a role in helping biodiversity by not mowing your lawn during May. Or if you don’t like the sight of a wild yard, try keeping the mower blade higher this month to give plants and insects a chance to do their job.

Keep the mower in the shed, let the bees do their work instead!
