Bees have always been there for us; they pollinate the plants that grow the foods we love. But now bees are in decline and they need our help.
Factors like habitat loss, pests and agricultural practices have created a world that is not bee-friendly. That’s why we’re asking everyone to help increase bee habitat by planting wildflowers to help bees thrive. It’s also why we’re donating $0.50, up to $150,000, for every code redeemed online before December 31, 2014, to help support bee research and habitat creation.
Join us and do your part to help the bees!
Cascadian Farm will donate to one of three Bee Friendlier actions when a code is redeemed online. Want to get a code? No problem. Step into our Bee Booth to earn one now.
For every code entered online by December 31, 2014, we will donate 50¢ to your choice of the following bee-related charitable initiatives: (1) Xerces Society (for training and education); (2) Xerces Society (for wildflower habitat); or (3) University of Minnesota Bee Lab (for research and outreach). Maximum total donation of $150,000 based on online code entry and other consumer actions.

Organic farming provides good, clean food for humans – and does the same for bees. Discover the benefits of organic.
At Cascadian Farm, we’ve been farming organically since 1972, and we know how essential bees are to the environment and food supply. In fact, almost all of the food that we make depends on bees. That’s why we’re spearheading Bee Friendlier, an education and support program to help bees thrive. It’s also why we’re donating $0.50, up to $150,000, for every code redeemed online before December 31, 2014, to help support bee research and habitat creation.
