Great editorial from the New York Times
Somehow I missed this when the article was published last June, but I found it compelling and encouraging - in spite of the depressing leading topic (where are the butterflies???). Earlier this year, Mission Bay Landscaping completed a large living roof restoration that's VERY pollinator friendly (several thousand square feet of blooming sedum). I was particularly excited to hear about how some solar farm developers are planting clover, native grasses and native wildflowers underneath the panels - reducing erosion, dust, and providing food for pollinators. The benefits are many - the drawbacks none?
