Join soil scientist Dr. Akilah Martin and me as we welcome our guest Danielle Russell School Garden Coordinator at Openlands for this second part of the CPHP June Garden Education podcast series. Our objective was to provide a basic overview of pollination and pollinators but the conversation expanded some to cover topics related to trees, the urban tree canopy, and its relationship to mitigating climate change, cooling the urban heat island as well as additional benefits. Tune in to this episode to hear the full scope of our lively conversation with Danielle.
