No Mow May
By, Meg Birmingham
April showers bring May Flowers and while we (seemingly) haven’t had any rain this year, May is still one of the most important months for native flora to grow. This brings us to the concept of No Mo May: “Mowing your lawn less creates habitat and can increase the abundance and diversity of wildlife including bees and other pollinators. One way to reduce mowing is by participating in No Mow May.”
If you have a lawn this can be a great way to benefit pollinators, save water, help your lawn become more resilient to drought, and reduce emissions from gas-powered lawn equipment.
