Elementary school students in Putnam County, Georgia have formed a garden club, and they are growing vegetables and flowers. The Monitor’s Mark Wildman tells us more. Video Rating: / 5 For all that bees, butterflies and other pollinators do for us — and the fruits, vegetables and flowers we love — they’ve earned a prime spot on the commemorative calendar. Now they have one: National Pollinator Week begins on June 15 and runs through the first day of summer. The week is the perfect time to teach the essential lesson that pollinators are both vital and fragile, diverse and endangered, and that without them the world would lose so much — colors, tastes, sustenance and joy.

    Pollinators are essential to life as we know it, yet most children don't understand where their food comes from…This is such and important life's lesson! -I wish all schools did this!
