What is a Bee Safe Neighborhood?
Lakewood’s Sustainable Neighborhood Program is collaborating with the Living Systems Institute on the Bee Safe Neighborhood program. Bee Safe Neighborhoods bring neighbors together to create a place that is safe for bees and other pollinators and for people too! The program aims to eliminate the use of neonic and systemic pesticides. Neighbors sign a pledge to create environments that are safe for bees and other pollinators. The pledge is, first, not to use insecticide products that contain neonicotinoids or systemics, and then optionally, to also plant bee-friendly plants.
