Hendersonville: the 7th Bee City USA in the Nation
Thinking globally and acting locally, Bee City USA provides a framework for communities to work together to conserve native pollinators by increasing the abundance of native plants, providing nest sites, and reducing the use of pesticides. On May 7, 2015, Hendersonville passed a resolution to become a Bee City USA affiliate, the seventh municipality in the country to be so designated. The effort was approved by a unanimous vote of Hendersonville City Council. There are now over 200 affiliates in over 40 states! In February 2022, Bullington Gardens was selected as the non-profit partner to assist the City of Hendersonville Tree Board with implementing the Bee City USA - Hendersonville program.
