Summary

The Hunger Coalition needs nests for native bees at their new farm, Bloom Community Farm.

Description

Did you know that there are 4,000 species of native bees in America? These bees are the most important group of pollinators, responsible for moving pollen between flowers and ensuring the growth of seeds and fruit. Unfortunately, human’s modern landscape often does not leave safe places for the bees to nest. Help to create more spaces for these bees to nest at Bloom Community Farm by building Nesting Blocks.
