Many people swat and run when they see a bee. However, rather than searching for people to sting, honey bees are searching for nectar. Honey bees and plants have an ancient, reciprocal relationship. Flowering plants provide bees with essential nutients while bees provide plants with the means to reproduce, which is crucial for humans. Without bees, the human food supply would be extremely limited. RPG's All-America Selections Display Garden provides a feast for bees and other invaluable pollinators.
