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!

    I am so excited to hear and read about this! I have several pollinators growing from seed in my greenhouse. We found out that we own 52 YARDS of the field next to ours. I’ve been planning a pollinator garden for bees and butterflies, every since. We received the prints outlining the extra ground on Tuesday and I haven’t stopped planning it since. I will send pictures as I go!

    • Wow, Gina! That’s incredible! We look forward to seeing them! #PolliNation

  • I’ve planted several Dill plants & I have Monarch Catapellars on them now
    I also have other plants that I have planted for the Bees!!! Love them!!
