If you want to save your local bees, you cannot rely on corporations to do it for you. While it’s a nice sentiment for Cheerios and Burt’s Bees (which, to be fair, they’ve almost always had a commitment to the environment) to take a stand to support our endangered species (we’re counting down months until this planet is no longer habitable), it is impossible for them to know what plants are actually suited for your own habitat. A while ago, I reviewed a book about gardening for bees, but here are some other steps you can take.
As I’ve mentioned before, I’m something of a novice gardener. That said, I have decided to make an attempt to grow some plants, have gotten some seeds to do so, and began reading The Bee-Friendly Garden.
