Holly Kocet is a Certified Advanced Master Gardener and a past pressident of the Garden Club of Newtown.

She is an active member of "Protect Our Pollinators", a small Newtown-based group that seeks to increase awareness of threatened pollinator species.

There is increasing evidence that our pollinators are in decline due to habitat loss, pesticide use and other environmental factors. Holly will explain the cause of the decline, and share suggestions on how to help preserve our pollinators.
