“Humanity depends on pollinators. They are vital to the global food chain” - @presidentirl

Do you part in Ireland’s biggest pollination project now by planting a pollinator-friendly bulb now which will bloom next Spring. It’s a tiny challenge with an important impact.

“Humanity depends on bees. They are vital to the global food chain” - @presidentirl Michael D. Higgins

One third of our bee species is threatened with extinction in Ireland. This is because we have drastically reduced the amount of flowers they eat and places where they can safely nest.

As part of marking Gaisce’s 35th Anniversary, we want to play our part and step up. Our Gaisce participants care about climate change and the need for urgent action - this is a response we know everyone can be part of. We will be issuing a special commemorative Gaisce certificate to all those who participate, regardless of age or location!

Every single post primary school in the county will receive 50 @allirelandpollinatorplan approved bulbs in the next few days, along with disability services working with Gaisce, our wonderful challenge partners, and TDs representing every constituency ☀️

You don’t even have to have a garden to take on this challenge. Whatever patch you have will help our vital bee population. From a pot on your window sill, to a planter by the front door - get a pollinator friendly bulb in the ground!

If you’re part of a youth or community group, check out our website in the next few days with info on local bulb pick-up points!

You can also get pollinator friendly bulbs as a member of the public in any garden centre.

Once you’ve planted your bulb - tell us about it online, add a 🐝 to your Instagram name and use #BulbsForBees to show us where you’ve planted yours!
