Resources to Support Our Pollinators

Pollinators are essential to our ecosystems and our food system

April 2020

• Protect bees from pesticides by limiting or eliminating pesticide use in your garden
• Provide bees with a sustained food source in your garden by planting a bee-friendly variety of plants that bloom at successive times throughout the season
• Create bee habitat by providing nesting areas for bees
• Buy local and organic food to support farmers and producers who use bee-friendly practices
Support MOFGA and all the work we do at the state and national level to legislate for change and increase the number of organic farms!

Please sign our petition to protect pollinators by banning neonicotinoid pesticide use in Maine.
