We promote pollinator community health and pollination services through research into habitat conservation on small-scale diversified production systems of western Washington. This research has a strong focus on developing techniques that are practical and useful for growers in both long-term organic and transitioning farming systems.
The Northwest Pollinator Initiative is a program of Washington State University Department of Entomology/ Crowder Laboratory with support from The Common Acre, Tilth Producers of Washington and 35 participating farms. Generous financial support is provided by the USDA, wSARE, and the National Science Foundation.
