To reach out to the public in a popular way Pollinate Sweden created a series of posters and cards with attractive illustrations of flowers and insects, together with a Plant Guide on what trees, plants, herbs and flowers to put in your garden to benefit the pollinators. The purpose of the campaign is to increase knowledge of who the pollinators are – not only honeybees but also beetles, butterflies, hoverflies, solitary bees and bumblebees – and what they need. The illustrations are made by Aron Landahl, design by Anna Lind Lewin.
The posters and cards can be ordered at firstname.lastname@example.org
