Pollinator Resources

Resources to Support Our Pollinators

Pollinators are essential to our ecosystems and our food system. Here’s how you can support native pollinators in Maine:

  • 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! Donate today!
