About this learning resource
Climate change is affecting all of us around the world, not least in the UK. Our pollinators need our help more than ever - and we need them. This lesson pack explores the symbiotic relationship between flowers and pollinators, and how we humans rely on both for our wellbeing and that of our planet. It examines the ecology found within a pollinator-supporting garden, and the importance of pollinators to the garden’s survival and, indirectly, to our own.
