“If the bee disappeared off the surface of the globe, then man would have only four years of life left. No more bees, no more pollination, no more plants, no more animals, no more man." ~ Albert Einstein

I would like to invite you to celebrate the pollinators in your garden and share original photographs or videos of plants that you have planted to attract butterflies, bees, and birds. This spring, summer and fall we are encouraging all Master Gardeners and anyone who loves gardening to support the “BEE A GARDENER” project that is sponsored by Alabama Extension Home Grounds Team which includes Master Gardeners from Jefferson County. We hope you will participate by posting to your favorite social media outlet any time you find a fitting original photo (Please add #BEAGARDENERAL to your post). The goal is to raise awareness on the importance of pollinators and to demonstrate how we can all make our yards, patios, and porches attractive to pollinators. The photos will be tracked between now and Oct. 15, 2020 so post often on all media platforms! Be prolific and inundate social media with your beautiful images. These are some photos I posted:

Three pictures of pollinators on plants.

We will not be meeting in June but look for email updates as to when we will resume our meetings. If you have concerns and suggestions on how we can meet safely later this summer please email me at

Bee safe and keep gardening!
