Plant milkweed at the White House garden to provide host and nectar plants for Monarch butterflies and other pollinators.

Monarch butterlfies and other pollinators are under siege.  Recent reports suggest the Monarch butterfly numbers have plunged so low that their migration may cease to exist.  The plight of Monarch butterflies exemplifies the threat to all our pollinators, the hardworking creatures that pollinate 75% of our food crops.  Habitat loss, the pervasiveness of herbicide tolerant crops and pesticide use are to blame.  We must work together to restore Monarch and other pollinator habitat.  Planting milkweed at the White House would raise awareness while providing the Monarch with its host plant ond other pollinators a favorite nectar source.
