Join the Million Pollinator Garden Challenge

The GrowIt! community is a National Pollinator Garden Network partner, working to build awareness and register one million pollinator gardens to support the health of bees, butterflies, birds, and bats.

Bees pollinate one-third of our food crops, yet pollinators are at a critical point in their survival.

Join the movement. As of June 2017, our community has planted 4,000 pollinator plants. Let’s get to 5,000! Make a choice to include plants in your space that provide a natural habitat or food for pollinators. Take a picture of the plant and upload it to GrowIt! with the #PolliNation to include the plant in the official registry. The objective of the challenge is to increase nectar and pollen providing landscapes of every size in order to address one of the significant threats to pollinator health – the loss of habitat for pollinators. Let’s save the bees!
