Tune in to KGW’s “Portland Today” TV show LIVE tomorrow (Friday) 11 am and find out about planting a bee-friendly garden.

In April Beyond Toxics proposed a show about planting bee-friendly gardens to Portland-area TV news media and KGW responded. We brought together producers at KGW-TV with Lori Vollmer, owner of Garden Fever! and Portland-area gardener, Jim Rondone. The resulting show with Lori and Jim will air LIVE from Jim’s garden (below) tomorrow at 11 am.

The Save Oregon Bees campaign will take neonicotinoid pesticides out of consumer stores. This action ensures that homeowners don’t inadvertently reach for bee-killing pesticides on store shelves to avoid bringing these poisons home. This will make a significant difference in the survival of native and honey bees across the state! The last place for dangerous and persistent poisons is in the yards of Oregon homeowners. Ultimately, these highly toxic and persistent pesticides should be banned. They kill fish as well as bees! Save Oregon Bees also protects birds, butterflies, salmon and other fish and Oregon’s water quality.

In 2017, Beyond Toxics took the next step in the campaign by introducing SB 929 – the Oregon Pollinator Protection Act. The bill (OPPA) stalled in the Senate. It will be re-introduced in 2018.
