April 27, People & Pollinators Program to launch
CPFAN Annual Board Meeting:

CPFAN’s Annual Board meeting will take place on Tuesday, April 27 this year, instead of on our usual first Tuesday of the month due to unforeseeable problems. The meeting will begin with a program presented by Joyce Kennedy, Chief Coordinator for People & Pollinators Action Network (PPAN), a vital new organization in our community dedicated to protecting people and pollinators through sustainable practices.

According to their website (

“OUR MISSION: People and Pollinators Action Network (PPAN) is protecting people and pollinators by advocating for healthy and safe pollinator habitats, promoting sustainable agricultural practices and new safeguards for public health, and working to sustain biodiversity in our environment across Colorado. We believe that community awareness and engagement are necessary for the transformation of public policy based on best practice recommendations in the use of chemical pesticides and pollinator habitat management.”

Since the 2018 City Park Master Plan Update makes many references to possible propagator gardens for City Park, the PPAN presentation should help educate us about best practices for these types of gardens to thrive.

Following the program, the Annual Meeting will take place and all CPFAN members are urged to attend. The Nominating Committee will present its recommended slate of Board Members two weeks before the meeting in a CPFAN Mail Chimp to members on April 13. Members can make nominations from the floor at the April 27 Board meeting as well. Members in attendance at the Annual Meeting will vote for seven Board members. A registration link will be included in the April 13 Mail Chimp.
