Bee Lawns

Let’s put an end to chemically treated turf  which provides no food for pollinators. PFA guides individuals, businesses and communities to install beautiful, low maintenance bee lawns which provide food and habitat for pollinators and birds, and filtration for ground water. Find more info here.
