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