Each week at The Pollination Project, we highlight seven grantees whose projects range from arts and animal rights to environmentalism and education. This week is no different although let us take a moment to remember that the driving forces behind these projects range from the grantees to nature’s busy bees. Whether you have community members in Kenya constructing private toilets for girls or pollinators in Colorado helping to spread nature’s seeds, these projects are fostering huge change.

Congratulations to our seven recent seed grant recipients!
