About Kristina Lefever

Kristina is the president of the Pollinator Project Rogue Valley, chair of Bee City USA Ashland, a board member of Beyond Toxics, and a certified Jackson County Master Gardener. Her dream is that everyone's yard will include a little or a lot of pollinator habitat, even if it's just a pot of nepeta (catmint) on the porch. Kristina and her husband have turned their barren property in Ashland Oregon into a pollinator garden, with many native plants, trees - and dandelions - but of course it's never finished. She loves teaching about our native bees, butterflies, flies, wasps, beetles, and humming- birds, and the plants and habitats that best support them.
