What to do to help bees

By Jena Griffiths | September 21, 2013

Here’s a great, proactive Ted Talk on bees by Marla Spivak: Why bees are disappearing and what you personally can do to help them.

Plant more bee friendly flowers! Healthy, pesticide free preferably local/indigenous flowers.
Anywhere. Everywhere. Even in city window boxes.
I’m going to re-invent my garden totally.
It would also be great if legislation could be created to require mono-culture agricultural farms to grow bee friendly hedges or corridors between their “flower deserts”.

There’s also a project to support wild bees in Switzerland. Supporting bees, bee research and pollinating your garden at the same time.
I love it!
Perhaps this concept could be put into practice in other countries?
