Since GrowIt!’s launch, members have commented and asked questions about good pollinators. That’s why we knew partnering with the National Pollinator Garden Network to register one million gardens to support the health of bees, butterflies, birds, and bats was a movement our community would back.
Bees pollinate one-third of our food crops, yet pollinators are at a critical point in their survival.
Join the Million Pollinator Garden Challenge. Make a choice to include plants that provide a natural habitat or food for pollinators. Take a picture of the plant and upload it to GrowIt! with the #PolliNation to include the plant in the official registry. The objective of the challenge is to increase nectar and pollen providing landscapes of every size in order to address one of the significant threats to pollinator health – the loss of habitat for pollinators. Let’s save the bees!
