Michelle Obama: Stand up for bees in the White House garden and beyond

This year, first lady Michelle Obama has added a pollinator garden to the White House Kitchen Garden to support bees, butterflies and other pollinators. Like many backyard gardeners, the first lady is doing her part to create habitat for bees, which are essential to one out of three bites of food we eat, and which are dying off globally in record numbers.

Because of the global bee crisis, and because we believe that Mrs. Obama understands the importance of pesticide-free organic gardening and the importance of healthy bees for the health of our food supply, the health of our families and the health of our planet, we’re asking her to join us in standing up for bees.

Please ask Michelle Obama to set an example for the nation by banning bee-killing pesticides from the White House gardens and urging the EPA and Congress to take swift action to protect bees and other pollinators.
