Did you know that bees are responsible for one in every three bites of food that we eat? Flowering plants rely on bees for pollination to produce fruit and seeds. Without bees, there would be very few insects pollinating plants.
What can you do?
Plant bee-friendly plants and flowers in your garden and yard (Read more about how to plant a bee garden here)
Don't use chemicals or pesticides on your lawn or garden. These can be extremely harmful to the bees!
Buy local, raw honey. Head to a local farmers market and meet some beekeepers! Support your local beekeepers interested in sustainability and bee conservation.
Buy local, organic food. Chemicals and pesticides that are sprayed on crops are harmful to bee populations. Support your local organic farmers!
