Please sign petition for pollinator-friendly planting of solar farms

We are working to convince the City of Afton, MN that the solar development they are planning should have pollinator-friendly, pesticide-free, native, blooming plants installed alongside the panels. this will benefit all pollinators, improve agricultural yields in the surrounding land and be attractive.

Here is the link. Where you sign is down toward the bottom. You can answer no or x out of the handful of further requests the site makes (all well-meaning). It is not a spam-a-palooza and if you do get follow-up emails you don't want-- just use the 'unsubscribe' at the bottom once and will leave you alone.

This case study on the Minnesota Solar Sanctuaries Bill 3353 might also be of interest to you:

Caucus Day Today!

Caucuses are interesting and driven by what the participants bring to the table. I believe there will be a straw poll for MN Governor plus opportunities to propose resolutions for your party to adopt.

Here is a fact sheet about some of the pollinator issues you might want to impress upon your candidates and voting community

Here is a link to find your caucus.

The squeaky wheel gets the oil. Decisions are made by those who show up.
