EcoBuz: What’s the Buzz February Newsletter

This month our Partner EcoBuz shares some interesting thoughts on the relationship between insects and having healty soils and gardens. In their Newsletter you will also find some great gardening tips for us during the hot summer days. Thanks EcoBuz!

Hot summer days always remind me of cool evenings sitting out in the garden with my family. Life for my parents seemed to slow down to a standstill, while we as kids enjoyed the fading heat of the day and the increasing volume of the ‘insect concerto’ my mom’s garden produced.

Insects are disappearing at a rapid rate, and studies suggest the extensive use of  pesticides may be to blame. Dr Jonathan Lundgren, a US agroecologist, recently shared the most staggering statistic ‘For every pest species, there are between 400 and 1700 species of insects that are beneficial to humans’. This is certainly food for thought…

At EcoBuz, our team is ‘a Buz’ with gardening solutions that have no impact on bees and beneficial insects. Our focus is on building healthy soils and gardens that are friendly to nature.

We wish you many happy days in your garden during 2020 – the year that has been recognised by the UN, FAO as the International Year of Plant Health.
