Crowdfund UC Davis thanks all of the donors who gave to this important project in February. This campaign has closed, but you can still support our program by making a donation.
Did you know UC Davis has a garden just for bees? It's called the Häagen-Dazs Honey Bee Haven and it's open to the public every day, free of charge.
Why should you care? Well, if you like to eat you should! Bees pollinate nearly 90 percent of all flowering plants, including the fruits, nuts, and vegetables that make our diets tasty and nutritious. Bees also pollinate the plants that create food and habitat for birds and most other wildlife. It’s clear: healthy, abundant bee populations are vital.
But bees are in trouble and they need our help. One of the best ways to do this is to plant flowers. Bees need flowers, and the Haven is a source of current, science-based information and inspiration about what and how to plant. The good news is that from a single flowerpot to acres, we can all do something to help.
Our goal is $5000 to purchase plants, irrigation supplies, and tools for the Haven to continue our vital mission of inspiration and education about bees and the plants that support them. We have no dedicated source of support and rely on donations and grants to keep us buzzing. Your support WILL make a difference.
Any amount is welcome, but please consider donating at one of the following levels.
Perfect for kids who may wish to contribute from their allowance. This will fund one plant. Donors will be recognized on social media.
Ideal for individual donors. This will fund multiple plants or a small pruning tool. Donors will be recognized on social media and our web page.
Keep us blooming with a donation at this level. This will allow us to purchase a fruit tree for the Haven. Donors will be recognized on social media and our web page.
Got a family or friend group that likes to work together to do good? Consider becoming a Haven Hive donor. Gifts at this level will support garden irrigation repairs or purchase a back-friendly ergonomic dump cart or similar tool. Donors will be recognized on social media and our web page and will receive permanent recognition in the garden.
Help lead our efforts through support at this level. Donations at this level will support replacement of garden zones or larger tool purchase. Donors will be recognized on social media and our web page and will receive permanent recognition in the garden.
