“Honey bees play an important role in pollinating many of our fruits, nuts and vegetables, which help contribute to a healthy, nutritious diet. Since bees are so important to our agriculture, we all need to do our part to help them thrive.
Lack of diverse food sources is a major obstacle to improving honey bee health. Quite simply, bees do not have access to all the pollen and nectar sources that they need.”
Supported by Bayer Bee Health, the Feed a Bee initiative will create forage areas with a diversity of bee-attractant plants for honey bees. Let’s all support honey bee health by growing 50 million flowers to create forage areas for bees! Visit www.FeedABee.com to request free seeds to plant on your own or ask the Feed a Bee partnership to plant seeds on your behalf. Each packet of 200 seeds will move the Feed a Bee ticker forward just that much further toward 50 million flowers for forage in 2015.
