Community Garden Pollination Program

Community Garden Pollination is a win-win-win!

Our Community Garden Pollination Program encourages public gardens and educational agencies to raise awareness of our native hole-nesting bees. Organizations and community groups can purchase a discounted all-in-one Community Garden Pollination Kit for their public gardens. The bee house creates awareness and provides education to visitors of the gardens, while also providing spring and summer pollination to the garden's flowers and crops.

RAISE AWARENESS OF NATIVE BEES

Most people don’t know about super-pollinating, native hole-nesting bees and our program is a wonderful way to introduce our native bees. Place a Community Garden Pollination Kit in your community’s garden and you will pique interest, educate the public, and raise awareness of our native bees.

The spring mason bees and summer leafcutter bees included in the Community Garden Pollination Kit are perfect for community gardens because they are gentle solitary bees that are much less aggressive than honey bees.

  • Solitary bees do not have a hive to defend and they don't live in a colony.
  • Solitary bees are docile and safe for children, families, and pets.
  • Their rare sting is mild and similar to a mosquito bite.
