If you have a yard, and you aren't deathly allergic to bees, there are a number of things you can do to help them out. Because bees are having a hard time these days and need a little TLC.
First, you could plant some sunflowers and take part in San Francisco State's Sunflower Project.
Then, take a long hard look at your garden.
According to Plenty magazine, the most important thing to do is to give bees a place to live and pollinate.
One of the most helpful things you can do is plant the right kind of flowers -- flowers that bees like. There's a great list at Urban Bee Gardens.
Are you doing anything in your garden to help the bees?
