Why Help #FeedABee?

  • Bees need diverse food just like we do. They gather pollen and nectar as food sources from flowers—and one of the biggest challenges facing bees today is finding enough food. The good news is, you can help them! By planting pollinator-attractant plants and gardens around the country, everyone can help feed the bees!

  • Honey bees play an important role in pollinating many of our fruits, nuts, and vegetables which help contribute to a healthy diet. Since bees are so important to agriculture, we all need to do our part to help them thrive.

  • People have helped feed a bee by planting their own gardens, ordering wildflowers to plant, and participating in partner plantings around the country. We want to keep the momentum going!

  • With your help, we want to plant millions more wildflower seeds. Planting your own pollinator-attractant flowers, applying for a grant, or using the hashtag #FeedABee to spread awareness about the need for more pollinator forage are all great ways to get involved. Let’s get planting!
