Million Pollinator Garden Challenge

USA – The Million Pollinator Garden Challenge aims to turn around the alarming decline of essential pollinators like honey bees by supporting President Obama’s call to “promote the health of honey bees and other pollinators”. The Challenge hopes to sign up 1 million American gardens.

The National Pollinator Garden Network is an unprecedented collaboration between conservation networks and gardening organizations like the nursery industry’s National Garden Bureau. The Network hopes to engage home gardeners, schoolyard gardens, community groups as well as government agencies and industry to establish pollinator gardens, no matter how small.

National Pollinator Garden NetworkThe Network aims for 1 million habitat and nectar gardens by the end of 2016, from a humble window box, to a new garden on a golf course, a farm garden or a university campus garden.
