Free wildflower seeds courtesy of General Mills that help pollinators.

I normally don't promote corporate type stuff because it is usually insidiously self-serving, however I think this is kind of a win-win. Free wildflower seeds courtesy of General Mills that help pollinators.

Thanks Beekeepers Club of Gwinnett County for sharing!

Not in Canada, but that page links to a great TEDTalk about bees.

I've found a few links to the US campaign, but when you click on the link, there's nothing on the page about saving the bees or wildflower seeds. Very odd.

Thanks for the info! I'll check it out. Free seeds are good even if it is a PR scam. Sorry if I get off topic or a little political here but as a public service...
Don't let General Mills fool you though. If they cared so much about the bees or us they would not use Glyphosate on their grains. Cheerios marketed as "Gluten Free" and "Heart Healthy" contains some of the highest amount of ppb. 1125.3 ppb!!! 0.05 is dangerous. I ate them daily for years. Diagnosed Type 1 Diabetic at 40. They were my favorite and I have been feeding them to my 2 yr old son. Uhg!! I also gave up my OREOs
I am more hell bent than ever to eat only what we can grow. Here is a video from Glyphosate News. A full article can be found at NaturalNews.com

Yup, I remember reading that, too, and wishing all the parents who give them to babies would stop.
