You may have had heard lately that the bees are in trouble. Bees are one of many pollinators that keep us alive by spreading pollen so that many of the plants will be able to grow. Without pollinators the human race would starve to death. They are super important!
How You Can Help The Bees
There are a few ways you can help out the bee population. The first one is grow as organically as possible. Herbicides and pesticides hurt the bees and other pollinators, sometimes causing the entire hive to die. Use mulch, close plant spacing, chickens, natural predators, or remove pests and weeds by hand instead of spraying on a chemical.
Plant What Bees Love
The second way to help the bees is by planting lots of plants that they love. This will also help your garden, as the plants will attract them to your garden to pollinate your own crops. Here are five edible and useful plants for your garden that bees will love.
