Bee-friendly garden lands El Dorado 4-Hers grant funds

Honey Bee

When youth members of Northside Nuggets 4-H in El Dorado County became concerned about the decline in pollinator populations, they decided to do something about it. With the help of their UCCE 4-H advisor, club members adopted a garden plot at the El Dorado County Fairgrounds where they planted a garden designed to attract bees, butterflies, and other pollinators. UCCE Master Gardener volunteers donated the plant material and helped the club figure out which plants would be best at attracting the pollinators. In recognition for this work, the club was awarded a grant of $1,000 from the 4-H Revolution of Responsibility program. Members plan to use the money to help teach about the decline of pollinators at local farmers markets and help the customers there see how they can be a part of the solution.
