Great Sunflowers and Bees

This year we are going to count bees. Oh yes, some folks count birds, some count homeless people in their cities, we are going to count bees. The great sunflower project has been doing this a couple years... individuals, students and schools sign up... the project sends out free sunflower seeds, you grow 'em, then count bees and send the info back to the mothership.
Since bees are disappearing, which is vital to pollination, which is vital to our plant food source, I thought this would be a blast to join. And subtly educational for my urchins. (But I am not going to mention that part)
Wanna sign up or get info? :
