Robinson has been studying the relationships between soil biology, plant health, and pollinator habitat since her first organic food garden. She has done extensive research on the impact that synthetic fertilizers and pesticides have on the health of soil and its ability to sustain plant growth. Judith teaches workshops at corporations, educational institutions, and nonprofit organizations about the importance of providing habitat and nutritional support for native pollinators, including the butterflies, bees, and birds that are necessary for the health of food production and pollinator-dependent plants. She also designs native plant garden that can be tailored to any size yard, from large or tiny.
