Lee,
thanks for posting this here. It is an important step and it does highlight something too often ignored in beekeeping discussions: the urgency to improve pollinator habitat as for example permaculture can help address. We have seen a decade of decline with honey bees and constant struggle for beekeepers, yet the focus is rarely on what the bees ingest or fail to obtain from the environment. On the other hand, there is no shortage of "sugar patties" recipes. This is the web of life being dismantled right in front of our noses. Same goes for the Monarch butterfly. Read the document - or better still, watch the bees foraging your garden!
