Feed The Bees
Feed The Bees
This spring and summer, COG wants your help feeding the bees. We are distributing 200 packages of organic, pollinator-friendly seeds around Ontario to be planted. Unfortunately at this time we no longer have seeds available to distribute, but there are other ways you can help us out across Canada:
- Plant your own pollinator friendly garden. Talk to a local seed supplier to find out what native, pollinator friendly plants are best for your region, the more colour and variety, the better.
- Build a bee or butterfly house following these simple steps.
- Send us pictures of your pollinator friendly flowers by e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org, on Facebook, or Instagram to enter our Photo Contest.
- Download our Info Sheet for some Fun Facts about Pollinator Friendly Plants and planting guidelines for what we're using in Ontario this year.
