Summertime Love For Our Pollinators And YOU! A Whole Foods Market Gift Card Giveaway!

The most recent statistic I read stated bee colonies are dying off at a rate of 30% annually. THIRTY PERCENT annually is quite the dramatic number. Bees pollinate more than $15 billion dollars a year in crops, some which would totally disappear with out pollination, such as almonds. Can you imagine life without almonds. While the decline of the world's pollinators paints a very dark and gloomy picture, every single person can do something to help keep the bees alive.

Whole Foods Market suggests three ways everyone can help at home:

1.  Plant Flowers, isn't that a win-win for everyone?
2.  Make Space, native bees will dig nests in bare soil!
3. Go Organic, organic foods promote healthy ecosystems and a safe place for our pollinators.

  21. Dawn D (via fb) It makes me sad to think about how much we've abused this planet.

  22. This is nuts, but I had no idea bees made nests IN soil. I always picture either beekeeping operations or Winnie the Pooh style hives.
