U.S. Bee Buffer Project

Post by donwal » Wed Feb 11, 2015 8:45 pm

The Bee Buffer Project is a Pollinator Partnership (P2) initiative, sponsored by the The Burt’s Bees® Greater Good Foundation and is looking for partners: farmers, ranchers, foresters, and land managers and owners to take part in the U.S. Bee Buffer Project. We’re creating a foraging habitat of pollen and nectar sources — land dedicated to honey bee health in California and North Carolina. We need your help.

The U.S. Bee Buffer Project has a lot to offer qualified participants:
•Leadership participation in a nation-wide effort to support honey bees
•The potential to enrich your soil, reduce an invasive plant species and enhance wildlife habitat
•Free seeds and planting information
•Supplemental pollination of all flowering plants

I wanted to, but this stopped me. ""A willingness to allow beekeepers and researchers on-site""

The planting site is too remote and too often unattended, with too many valuables in sight to let many unknown people onto it.
