Did you know?
- Honeybees pollinate more than 100 types of crops in the U.S.
- One in three bites of food is made possible by pollinators.
The Whole Kids Foundation, a charitable arm of Whole Foods, has a wealth of information and activities available online, including gardening tips, bee-related videos and great lists like “6 Ways to Help Honeybees.”
Here’s where to find a downloadable 20-page booklet called “The Inside Buzz.”
