Create a Pollinator Garden
In this project, you’ll be creating a garden with pollinator-friendly plants at either your school or community. This will not only craft a safe haven for local bees, but it’ll also give you a platform to educate others about the importance of pollinators. Why are bees and pollinators so important?
Here’s How We’ll Help
We’ll provide you with a batch of pollinator-friendly wildflower seeds, professionally blended by a certified bee master. We will potentially also be able to provide some pre-grown plants depending on where your team is based.
Here’s What You’ll Need to Do
You can begin planning anytime after January 4th, 2021. You can start planting between April and June. We will send you the seeds before April. You should have a nice cool location to store the seeds.
Step 1: Get a garden plot
Do you already have a school garden? Fantastic! We’ll give you the seeds and plants needed to convert it into a pollinator-friendly garden. If not, you’ll need to negotiate with the administration at your school for a garden plot. If your school does not already have garden beds, you may need to fundraise for garden beds and soil. If this is not an option, you can reach out to local daycares to ask them if they have any unused gardening space you can plant pollinator-friendly plants in.
Step 2: Receive the seeds
Step 3: Plant!
Step 4: Promote and Nurture the Garden
Step 5: Record photos/videos of the garden to share your process with us
