Last year, President Obama directed all federal agencies to assist in pollinator conservation to protect our nation’s food security and to help keep pollinators healthy. The President’s National Pollinator Initiative is a commitment to sustaining the future of pollinators through research, policy, education, and action. As pollinators thrive and multiply, our nation will benefit.
Your help is needed! Pollinators are our friends, so go forth and sow! W. Atlee Burpee & Co. donated a half a million seed packets to the National Park Service to share with school children across the country. By planting these seeds in your home or school garden, you can be a part of the international effort to keep beauty in the air and food on our tables! Share and register your garden at the Pollinator Partnership website.
If you are a teacher or youth leader in the lower 48 states and would like seed packets to start your school or community garden, please email us to request a free box of seed packets.
