๐Ÿ Save the Bees ๐Ÿ

Bees are an essential partner to our beautiful vegetable and flower gardens. A world without bees would be devastating to our food system and nature. We need to continue researching to understand what is causing their ever shrinking numbers and find a way to remedy the situation.ย 

And there is a way that you can help! You are invited to partner with Grow Your Own Vegetables and others from the Superfood Garden Summit to support the Save the Bee initiative. By donating to this important cause, you will help toโ€ฆ

๐Ÿ Increase awareness of the role honey bees play in a healthy food supply
๐Ÿ Fund scientific research on the causes and solutions to declining bee population
๐Ÿ Provide education of best practices to farmers, gardeners, and beekeepers


๐Ÿ We can all agree that we need and want to help our pollinator friends and ensure that they are around to continue to help the worldโ€™s gardens for years to come. ๐Ÿ

๐Ÿ“ฐ Extra! Extra! Seed All About It! ๐Ÿ“ฐ

The seeds that you plant are a reflection of who you are and your partnership with nature. There are lots of different variations of seeds, which can be overwhelming and confusing. For this reason, a Seeds Micro Course is part of the Grow Your Own Vegetables curriculum.

In the Seeds Micro Course, youโ€™ll learn the differences betweenโ€ฆ

๐ŸŒฐ Conventional and Organic
๐ŸŒฐ Open Pollinated and Hybrid
๐ŸŒฐ Open Pollinated and True to Type
๐ŸŒฐ True to Type and Heirloom
๐ŸŒฐ Heirloom and Heritage
๐ŸŒฐ GMOsโ€ฆand literally all seeds throughout history

In order to select the seeds that align with your values, you need to understand the many different types available to you. The Seeds Micro Course provides you with a strong foundation in order to understand what youโ€™re planting.
