pollinators at work

Bees, butterflies, and other insects are responsible for pollinating more than one-third of the food we eat. But due to environmental challenges like habitat loss, climate change, and widespread pesticide use, their population is in steep decline.

That’s why the American Horticultural Society (AHS) is celebrating our second annual Giving Day on August 15, 2020, with a goal of raising $10,000 to inspire more gardeners to protect our green planet by providing habitat for bees and other precious pollinators.



Our friends at MOM’s Organic Market have contributed a supporting gift to give us a head start on reaching our Giving Day campaign goal.


Your pollinator garden should include a mix of native plants that bloom in spring, summer, and fall to provide nesting areas and food sources for bees and other pollinators throughout the growing season. Situate your garden in a sunny area with both wind breaks and a water source. And try to eliminate or minimize the impact of pesticides, which are closely linked to the collapse of bee colonies.


Make your best Giving Day gift today to further all of our work to make America a land of sustainable gardens, cultivated by a diverse population with a common passion for plants.


Thank you, in advance, for your support and for helping the AHS protect the pollinators that bring our gardens to life.
