The Problem

Native bees face many threats, but gardeners can help these indispensable pollinators. Plant for the bees!

Our Plan

Most every gardener, dare I say most every human appreciates bees and pollinators. We need them to sustain our very lives. Most of us also aware of the problems of colony collapse and would like to do something even if we don’t have the inclination or location to put up a bee hive. Thankfully there is something we can all do even if we don’t want to become beekeepers and that is create native bee habitat. Planting gardens so that a variety of native bees can not only find a home but find food in a way that is more natural to them, i.e. plant in groupings. There’s so much more to it than just planting a few flowers. Children are our future. The goal is for every school to have an area to plant native flowers. Native flowers help feed bees and are uniquely adapted to their region. Children will learn about the native bees and flowers at school and hopefully will have their own bee habitat at home.
