Bumblebees and Giving Flowers

We're celebrating Earth Day at Art Feeds! Bees are an essential part of our planet! We need bees to pollinate the plants that produce fruits, nuts, vegetables, and flowers. Without the bees, we might not have enough food to eat! Their small daily tasks of collecting nectar and pollinating plants help the earth in a huge way. We can be like Bumblebees and do small daily things to help our communities, the planet, and the world! Let's make bees and a generosity flower out of mostly recycled materials to celebrate.
