You can change the world...

one flower at a time! 

Join the movement to plant a pollinator refuge garden in your own backyard! 

It's an easy, fun, and beautiful way to help save the bees!

 Plant. Grow. 

1.

Look up what flowers are native to your area. Zinnias & Sunflowers are a good annual to start with in the North East. 

Buy non GMO seeds.

2.

Find a sunny spot in your yard that you can dedicate to growing a refuge garden for the bees. 

This area can not be sprayed or near grass that is treated with chemicals. 

3.

Prepare your plot to plant. You may want to add organic potting soil or mushroom soil from your local farmer to help nourish your seeds.

4.

Read directions on how to plant your seeds. 

Plant your seeds and have fun! 

With each seed that you plant dream about the flower that it will become.

5.

Have someone take a picture of you as you plant or of your garden after.
