Learn how to make your worksite more bee-friendly

City employees can now refer to a new page on CityTalk to learn how to incorporate more bee-friendly practices into their existing work. The Health Department’s Environmental Services Unit also has bee experts available for worksite consultations.

The initiative reflects the priority the City has placed on helping the dwindling bee population in Minneapolis. This year the City Council took significant action in the fight to protect the bee population in a resolution committing Minneapolis to planting more bee-friendly plants in the city and decreasing pesticide use.

The Environmental Services Unit launched the Conservation of Minneapolis Bees Project to give employees information and resources on how to create pollinator habitat and pollinator friendly practices. Pollinators make the fruits, vegetables and herbs  of a healthy ecosystem and food system possible. Making the environment more bee-friendly can help boost local food production which, in turn, can  improve the health and food security of Minneapolis residents.
