Do you have a step-by-step guide for growing a bean in a bottle to teach kids about agriculture? Or instructions for organizing a trash pickup day in your community? Or a favorite healthy recipe you make for friends and family? We’d love to hear those ideas, and have the opportunity to feature the great ideas, kids and 4-H clubs bringing them to life.

Feeding Bees across the Nation

Feed a Bee, an initiative started by the Bayer Bee Care Program, is seeking to support forage projects being conducted by 4-H clubs. Feed a Bee promotes pollinator health through planting native wildflowers and educating communities about the importance of honey bees and other pollinators. A current goal of the program is to plant forage in all 50 states by the end of 2018 to increase food for pollinators across the country. To help achieve this goal, Feed a Bee is seeking to provide funds to facilitate new or ongoing pollinator initiatives lead by clubs across the country.

If your clubs have an interest in pollinators and would like to learn more about this initiative, please contact
