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?
