One of the most alarming trends in nature is the worldwide decline in bee populations. Thankfully Cheerios is taking action by teaming up with Veseys Seeds to give away 100 MILLION wild flower seeds to help save these vital members of the ecosystem (the goal of 100 million seeds has already been reached but fortunately there are still more available!). Anyone who wants to get involved in this wonderful cause can do so by going to the Cheerios Bring Back the Bees page and claiming their FREE wild flower seeds.  To claim the seeds a short online order form must be completed with a name, address, email address, and phone number.  While ordering the seeds an opportunity to sign up to receive the Veseys Seeds online newsletter featuring special offers and gardening advice will be available.  Those who place an order should expect the wild flower seeds to arrive within 4-6 weeks.
