MEE received a $5,000 grant from the Bayer Bee Care Program that launched the Feed a Bee 50-state forage initiative in 2018. Feed a Bee recently announced they met their 50 state goal!

In April 2019, MEE will be planting 5 acres of pollinator buffers at Bar-T Mountainside. Our seed mix will contain diverse, native, deer-resistant perennials. Pollinators supported by these forage buffers will service Mountainside Grows gardens, and be a great learning tool for Bar-T’s new entomology specialty summer camp!
