BEE FRIENDLY GARDENING

Pollinators need us and we need pollinators. Help us make a difference!

Your Website

Bee Friendly Gardening (BFG) helps people play a bigger role in the health of pollinators and the planet. More than 85% of North American households have an outdoor living space; by converting these areas to much-needed habitat, together we can have a big impact. Your space can provide support to pollinators and other wildlife - no lawn, garden, balcony, or window box is too small!
