In Your Backyard
Bees and other pollinators need our help! You can support bees in your backyard by providing pesticide-free habitat, growing bee-friendly plants or perhaps even becoming a beekeeper. Every little bit makes a difference.
Post a bee-friendly yard sign
Plant a bee-friendly garden
You donʼt need a lot of space, just a little extra consideration. A few containers of the right kinds of plants tucked into your garden will get you started. Even in the city, a container on a balcony or front stoop can make a big difference to the growing number of urban bees and their beekeepers.

Know what's on your food
Many foods are grown with the use of pesticides that are especially harmful to bees. Choosing bee-friendly produce will help protect honey bees foraging in orchards and agricultural fields. Know what's on your food, especially honey!
