The world’s bee and pollinator population has declined at an alarming rate in recent years thereby threatening the world’s food supply. One-third of the world’s food source relies on pollination by bees, birds, bats, and other insects, of which bees are by far the most significant player.

WE BELIEVE THERE’S A BETTER FUTURE FOR THE HONEYBEE AND WALDORF COMMUNITIES WORLDWIDE ARE TAKING ACTION.
 
Waldorf schools support an ecologically-green ‘continental parks system’ in backyards, playgrounds, school yards, and public spaces. The aim is to:
●      raise awareness of the plight of the honeybee and all pollinators
●      protect and preserve the honeybee and all pollinators
●      create a more sustainable future for our planet
 

Waldorf schools around North America are cultivating gardens, tending bees and establishing bee-tending programs to help support and rebuild the pollinator population.

Bring Back the Pollinators

Bees are struggling due to habitat loss, pesticides, and disease, but the good news is that there are things we can all do to make our communities better for bees. During this webinar, Matthew Shepherd of the Xerces Society will introduce you to the diversity and natural history of America’s native bees, and present straightforward ways in which you can make your garden—or neighborhood or city—better for bees.
