Greenwood, Bee City USA’s newest affiliate, will be celebrating National Pollinator Week with a special event on Tuesday, June 20 at 5:30 p.m. in front of Howard’s on Main.
Brochures, pollinator seeds donated from Park Seed, a Pollinator Plant list, and an observation hive will be available to attendees. Participants will also get to tour several of the City of Greenwood’s Pollinator gardens.
Bee City USA fosters ongoing dialogue in urban areas to raise awareness of the role pollinators play in our communities and what each of us can do to provide them with healthy habitat.
The Bee City USA program endorses a set of commitments, defined in a resolution, for creating sustainable habitats for pollinators, which are vital to feeding the planet. Communities that participate are provided numerous benefits, including improving local food production and addressing pest control issues less toxically.
Incorporated cities, towns, counties and communities across America are invited to make these commitments and become certified as a Bee City USA affiliate. For more information refer to www.beecityusa.org.
