Bees play an incredibly important role in our world. In fact, an estimated 1/3 of the human food supply comes from bee pollinated plants. Unfortunately, our bees are in trouble.The bee population is declining at an unsustainable rate due to disease, hive pests, pesticides, climate change, and habitat loss. Additionally, Bees require a lot of space. Bees must collect nectar from two million flowers to make just one pound of honey, and one bee will make only 1/12 of a teaspoon of honey in her lifetime!

In order to fight this decline, Bee Girl is partnering with farmers to establish "Bee Pasture" - land set aside specifically for bees. Through research, development, adn education, Bee Girl ensures there is sufficient habitat for bees, "nectar flow" for beekeepers, and nutritionally and economically improved pasture for farmers and their livestock. Your support will enable us to plant, research, and develop pasture for bees, and also help us to educate farmers on how to utilize our findings!

You can help provide healthy habitat for bees nationwide. Just $12 provides four square feet of bee pasture that feeds 500 bees.

Make your donation of $5 or more an ongoing gift by checking the "Make this a Monthly Gift" box before adding it to your cart, and you will help protect bees each and every month.


The Bee Girl's mission is to inspire and empower communities to conserve bees, their flowers, and our food system.
