GARDENERS BEWARE: More than half of the plants you buy at Home Depot and Lowe's are treated with bee-killing neonictinoids. Because there's no clear labeling, many good-intentioned gardeners end up poisoning the very bees they are trying to help! http://ow.ly/xakJk

That's just one of the many things you'll learn from our fascinating photo essay featuring beekeepers and experts! Check it out >> http://ow.ly/xakJk The more you learn, the more you can help protect our bees!

Comment:
I was going to Home Depot today for some seedlings but instead I'm going to the farmer's market tomorrow. Smile

Meet Urban Organic Farm - a one acre farm in a 50,000 sq. ft. abandoned brewery in St. Paul, Minnesota. The farm uses aquaponics and grows fresh, organic produce year round. The plants are grown in water that gets its nutrients from fish. The waste from fish is pumped to the plants, the plants' roots are suspended in the water and filter out the nutrients from the fish, and the water is filtered one more time and put back in the fish tank. The farm's first harvest consists of tilapia and five kinds of produce: green kale, red kale, Swiss chard, parsley and cilantro. As the operation expands, so will the variety. Less than an hour from farm to store. The future is organic and GMO Free!

Since 1997 Monsanto hasn't lost a single case against a farmer. Keep in mind these farmers all didn't want GMO seeds, didn't want GMO plants and in turn couldn't sell those GMO crops. Farmer Steve Marsh's fight is fighting a recent contamination case against Monsanto.

Butterfly populations have been decreasing due to habitat loss, climate change and pesticide use. Butterflies are very important for pollination.

Many species of butterfly require overripe fruit to supplement their diets. Decaying fruits have carbohydrates and minerals that most butterflies need. Help butterflies thrive by doing the following:

Place a large plate or dish outside with another smaller dish within it. Fill the outer larger dish with enough water to keep ants from the smaller dish. Place overripe fruit on the smaller plate cut in sections so they are easy to feed upon. Don't smash the fruit so the butterflies do not become stuck accidentally. Instead simply slice fruit pieces you would otherwise throw out and place them on the smaller plate. It will help the butterflies thrive! It is best to replace the fruit pieces either daily or when the fruit has begun to rot. No longer than a couple of days at a time however.
