Bees, butterflies, birds, and other pollinators help grow our food, keep our flowers blooming, and make our lands healthy. For many reasons, including lack of habitat, pollinators are struggling to survive.
W. Atlee Burpee & Co. recently donated half a million seed packets to the National Park Service to share with school children across the country and enable them to grow pollinator-friendly gardens. The seeds, well-suited for gardens in home yards, urban sites, schools, and developed gardens across the lower 48 states, have all been distributed and participants have been encouraged to share and register their gardens at the Pollinator Partnerships's website.
