There is a little more than a week left in Crown Bees’ Indiegogo fund-raising venture designed to give garden center retailers a chance to help increase awareness of native bees, and to increase the number of bees to pollinate local food.
The company is raising $100,000 to redesign “Bee with Me,” a social network that connects, maps and empowers bee boosters across the U.S.
Garden centers that take part in the campaign can:
- Be listed as a local resource for products and supplies in the online network
- Get access to and activate a new group of customers
- Be viewed as a leader in the community
- Be seen as a source of local expertise.
Within your own store and brand, there are several ways you can also help to raise awareness about native bees, such as educating customers about the gentle nature of solitary bees. Visit CrownBees.com for some easy facts to pass along.
