Bee Friendly Farming - Flow Native Seed Grant

Pollinator Partnership and Flow are proud to partner in support of Bee Friendly Farming Certified, through Flow’s donation of income generated from sales of their Flow Pollinator House. This funding has been used to develop a Native Seed Grant for current and new Bee Friendly Farming Certified members. The grant will provide up to 3 pounds of region-specific native seeds sourced from Applewood Seed Co. for 50 BFF members. This means more seeds in the ground and more flowers to support pollinators. The application period will be open for the month of October, closing on Saturday, October 31, 2020.

Awardee Commitment
