Sweet money up for grabs – $20,000 to help save pollinators

Flow Hive is super excited to be offering $20,000 to Australian schools, community, advocacy and NGO groups for projects which support pollinating insects.

Eligible projects may include:

  • habitat restoration, rehabilitation or preservation
  • education
  • advocacy

To apply go here.

This funding is the profits from Flow’s 2017 limited edition pollinator houses. The pollinator houses were made by upcycling timber offcuts of Flow Hives and sold out within one week!

The pollinator houses provide habitat for native pollinators including solitary bees.

“Pollinators are critical, not only to the crops we eat, but ultimately every living thing,” says Flow Hive co-inventor, Stuart Anderson.

“The funding is part of Flow’s commitment to business with positive purpose. It’s something small we can do to support some of the many groups already working to help the world’s 20,000 species of solitary bees and other native pollinators.”

According to the United Nations, 75 percent of crops depend on at least one of the world’s 20,000 pollinating species and 40 percent of those species face extinction. 

Submissions must be received by 28 June.
