Pollinators are in serious trouble and YOU can help save them. Did you know that every seed, tree, plant, bush and flower you buy is treated with a long lasting pesticide that you cannot wash off?
Crazy huh? How could your local garden shop advertise “Come and get your bee/pollinator friendly plants” while knowing those “bee friendly” plants are treated with neonics?
What are we to do?
Buy USDA certified organic plants and seeds. Neonicotinoids, the long lasting deadly pesticide, is not allowed in the organic system. So, when looking for plants and seeds, also look for that USDA Organic logo to bee sure the plant is safe for you pollinators.
There are other organic plant/seed certifiers. Look for these logos as well:
The top organic certifier in the country is CCOF. View their online directory of organic farms and resources: https://www.ccof.org/directory
