EDUCATION

 

Bee Safe Campaign

Beekeepers have been losing an unsustainable portion of their colonies every year since 2006, and neonics are a strongly implicated culprit. Beekeepers can breed honey bees to restore their numbers, but native pollinators like bumblebees and butterflies have no such support. Learn how you can help solve the problem through our educational resources.

Safe Growers

We called several wholesale and retail nurseries in and around Northern California to ask about their pest management strategies and rated them according to how confident we are that their plants are safe for bees. See the full list in our education page. If you're wondering about a grower that isn't listed, give them a call!

 

Pollinator Patch + Garden Manual 

This manual describes how to create a pollinator garden in the urban environment. We describe all of the steps to work with the government and the community as well as the steps to implement and build the garden. We highlight the Pollinator Blvd. in San Francisco as our pilot project and the experiences gained from that garden as well as the measurable impact results.

Pollinator Blvd. Bee Count Report

We worked with an entomologist to document the presence and diversity of bees on the site. The project was document through an entire year and we found 11 species of native bees amongst other pollinators. Compared to only one bee found on the non planted medians. We will repeat this in three years and note if more bees are found.
