Keep feeding those honey bees! Bees need our ongoing help to thrive, so Bees Matter has created a wealth of resources for teachers and parents, including downloadable lesson plan toolkits. This post is in partnership with Bees Matter, an initiative to spread news about honey bee health in Canada.
For the past several weeks, we have been helping honey bees through a series of posts in partnership with Bees Matter — an initiative to spread awareness and information about honey bee health in Canada.
In our first post, Bees Matter to Everyone — How You and Your Kids Can Help Bees Thrive, we introduced our readers to Bees Matter and shared information about how honey bees are doing in Canada and how we can help them thrive.
For our second post, we focused on how to plant pollinator friendly gardens so honey bees have sufficient local food sources. In order to get Canadians planting pollinator-friendly gardens across the country, Bees Matter designated June 5th to 12th as National Planting Week across the country and offered free Buzzing Gardens seed kits so everyone could get involved and plant their own pollinator-friendly garden.
