Join the Million Pollinator Garden Challenge! #GardenSense

I’ve been talking a lot about pollinators lately. Now it’s your turn!

Join the campaign to reach 1 million food and habitat sites for pollinators.
Anyone can help.

The Million Pollinator Garden Challenge is a campaign to register a million public and private gardens and landscapes to support pollinators.
Here is their mission statement:

The Million Pollinator Garden Challenge (MPGC) is a nationwide call to action to preserve and create gardens and landscapes that help revive the health of bees, butterflies, birds, bats and other pollinators across America. We will move millions of individuals, kids and families outdoors and make a connection between pollinators and the healthy food people eat.

Any size or type of garden qualifies. Vegetable gardens, flower gardens, orchards, community gardens, butterfly gardens, container gardens, patios and planted pathways and more.

Those who register can look for free seed offers coming their way and plant resources.

Okay, you say you don’t have a garden to register?

Other ways you can you do to help:

  • Support Pollinator friendly businesses
  • Get involved in a bee count
  • Eliminate or reduce your use of pesticides
  • Conserve water
  • Bee's Delight

    Do you have any bee, butterfly, bat or bird pollinator friendly stories to share? We’d love to hear from you!

    Cindy's Recipes and Writings

    As a professional cook, I love creating exciting new recipes on the job as well as at home. Assisting in teaching low-income families how to buy, store and prepare healthy food through Penn State’s alliance with Pennsylvania’s Supercupboard Program was very rewarding. During my 11 years with the Master Gardener program, I taught horticultural therapy to assisted living patients using healthful, fr
    esh grown food as a focal point. . My hands-on programs and instruction helped hundreds of children and adults learn about where their food comes from and how important fresh food is for your body.
    Currently I’m a cook at a college in Pennsylvania. We prepare everything we can from scratch, including our potato chips that tout the seasoning of the day!
    Of course I write about food; it's in my blood!
