Did you know that one-third of the world's food supply relies on pollinators like bees, butterflies, and hummingbirds? Sadly, their populations are declining due to habitat loss. At Dutchman's Gold, we're committed to creating a world that buzzes with life, and that's why we're launching our exciting "Let's Plant" campaign!

Our goal is ambitious – to plant a staggering 2 million pollinator-friendly flowers across Canada. But we can't do it alone! We need you and your friends and family to join us in this vital initiative. 

There are FIVE fantastic ways you can get involved and help make a difference for pollinators and our entire ecosystem, which we've outlined below.    These include getting your own pack of pollinator seeds and planting pollinator friendly flowers, to supporting Bee Friendly Promise products, to supporting No Mow May. 

Keep reading to discover how you can be a hero for our buzzing friends!

Together, let's plant!

Pollinator Seeds - Get Your
Pack and Let's Plant!

We're leading a nationwide effort to plant 2 million pollinator-friendly perennial flowers, creating 1000 square meters of pollinator-friendly gardens across Canada, including Ontario. 

We've partnered with MYGROBOX, who’ve curated specific pollinator-friendly seed packs for the campaign.

The seed packs contain specific pollinator friendly seeds including:  

Purple Asters: Rich purple blooms, abundant nectar, late-season, perfect for bees.  

Bergamot: Fragrant pink to lavender blooms, long-lasting, rich nectar source.  

Coreopsis: Bright yellow or orange blooms, drought-tolerant, continuous flowering.  

Echinacea: Pink to purple petals, medicinal, drought-resistant, nectar-rich.  

Wild Lupins: Showy blue, purple, or pink spikes, nitrogen-fixing, early bloomers.  

Planting can be easy and done anywhere there is dirt and soil. Through our "Let's Plant" campaign, we’ll be sharing tips on social media, and here our website offers additional information and guidance. 

We’re encouraging you to join us in planting for the bees, with honey bundles including these pollinator wildflower seed packs. 

Tips for planting! 

  • Native wildflower seeds are best planted in the late spring or early fall because that is their natural cycle for growth. 

  • Seedlings must be planted in the ground after the last frost in late May. Mornings are best when the ground is still cool! 

Celebrate World Bee Day
and Pollinator Week

May 20th is World Bee Day, and June 17th-23rd is Pollinator Week! Let's celebrate the incredible bees, butterflies, hummingbirds, and other buzzing buddies who keep our ecosystems thriving. Here's how you can join the fun and support our bees:

  • Plant a Pollinator Paradise:  Purchase a pack of our pollinator seeds or visit your local flower shop.  Create a haven for pollinators! Choose native flowers that bloom throughout the season, offering a continuous food source.
  • Bee a Bee Friend: Learn about creating a bee-friendly environment. We have resources and tips on attracting pollinators and keeping them safe at dutchmansgold.com.
  • Spread the Buzz: Share your pollinator-friendly garden on social media using #letsplant and inspire others!
  • Follow our social channels to stay up to date on these two amazing causes! We'll be sharing more tips and techniques on how to celebrate our bees!

No Mow May

In addition to our planting initiatives, we're urging you to refrain from spraying or mowing your lawns throughout May. No-Mow May isn't just a trend; it's gaining traction. Some regional municipalities are even encouraging folks to embrace it. Here's why you can feel good about letting your lawn go over the month of May: 

  • Food for the Pollinators: Bees adore dandelions and wildflowers. When we mow them down or douse them with pesticides, we're impacting bee populations and their crucial pollination work. 

  • Building Awareness and Connection: No-Mow May isn't just about letting the grass grow; it's about fostering a deeper understanding of bees' importance in our food chain. It's a small step that makes a big difference. 

  • A Feel-Good Initiative: There's something inherently satisfying about knowing we're playing our part. Letting dandelions and wildflowers flourish not only benefits bees but also reduces our reliance on harmful pesticides. It's a win-win for both nature and us. (and you save time!) 

Support Bee Friendly Products

The Dutchman's Gold Bee Friendly Promise™ embodies our commitment to consumers, bees, and the environment for long-term sustainability. This pledge revolves around five core pillars: supporting local beekeepers and pollinators, utilizing sustainable packaging and natural ingredients, and maintaining a steadfast commitment to quality. You'll find evidence of this promise on our labels, website, and through our partnerships with retailers. 

At Dutchman’s Gold, we actively combat the decline of honeybees by supporting local beekeepers in adopting sustainable agricultural practices. We educate others on the critical role of honeybees, advocate for pesticide-free foods, and undertake initiatives to restore pollinator habitats.  When you support Dutchman's Gold, you support our pollinators.

Why this is important to us and our environment. 

Unfortunately, honeybees face numerous challenges, including Colony Collapse Disorder (CCD), pesticide use, habitat loss, and climate change. These factors contribute to declining bee populations, posing threats to food security, biodiversity, and agricultural economies globally. 

To address these challenges, we advocate for sustainable agricultural practices, reduced pesticide use, habitat restoration, and increased awareness of pollinator importance.  

Our Bee Friendly Promise™ is at the heart of our mission and culture, embraced by our entire team of 27 employees and we’d like to take you on this journey with us.

This World Bee Day (May 20th), consider supporting Pollinator Partnership.ca, a registered Canadian charity dedicated to protecting these vital insects. Through research, education, and conservation efforts, they work tirelessly to create a future where pollinators can flourish. Here's why donating is important:

  • Healthy Ecosystems: Thriving pollinator populations support healthy ecosystems, promoting biodiversity and a balanced environment.
  • Sustainable Food Production: By ensuring healthy pollinator populations, we ensure a stable and secure food supply for generations to come.
  • Beautiful Landscapes: Pollinators are essential for the reproduction of many flowering plants, keeping our landscapes vibrant and colorful.

To show our commitment to these vital creatures, Dutchman's Gold will be donating a portion of our sales on World Bee Day to Pollinator Partnership.ca. Join us in supporting this important cause! Let's work together to create a world that buzzes with life. Visit Pollinator Partnership.ca to learn more and donate today!
