Planting Seeds - Food & Farming News from CDFA

Pollinator Week June 19-25 – CDFA committed to supporting the health of multiple pollinating species

It’s Pollinator Week! Pollinators like bees, butterflies, and bats provide one out of every three bites of food we eat.

We’re acknowledging this annual week of special recognition by highlighting awardees of CDFA’s Pollinator Habitat Program, which was established by the Budget Act of 2021 (Senate Bill 170, Skinner).

CDFA was appropriated $15 million to provide grant funding for the establishment of pollinator habitat on agricultural lands throughout California, and the agency was directed to administer the Pollinator Habitat Program and to prioritize the planning of native habitats for the benefit of native biodiversity and the use of locally appropriate native plant seed mixes when feasible.
