The Buzz on Bees and Watch your Water

Hey Joyful Ones, 

Here’s the last in this series of videos with organic agriculture and organic certifications expert Ryan Merck.

Here’s a quick summary of what’s in the video PLUS some information that we covered off-camera.

  • There are many kinds of bees and other wildlife (not just honeybees) that depend on native plants.
  • As individuals and businesses, we can leave some land “as is,” letting weeds and wildflowers grow.
  • When we plan landscaping, we can include native plants which do not need as much fertilizer or pest control.
  • Gardeners can choose to use organic fertilizers such as manure and compost.

Here are some action steps you can take:
