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.
