Don't Just Stand There ... Plant Something BC!

Imagine a World Without Bees.

Like us, bees (and other pollinators) rely on plants as an important source for food. Bees eat the pollen and nectar from plants and play an important role in pollination. By collecting their food, bees transfer pollen allowing fruit and seeds to grow. Unfortunately, bees are losing their habitat at an alarming rate. It is more important now, more than ever, to PlantSomething Bee Friendly. Choose plants high in pollen and nectar to keep the bees happy, fed and coming back!
