4-H Canada and Syngenta Canada are excited to launch year six of Proud to Bee a 4-H’er. To date, we've provided over 150,000 pollinator seed packets to 4-H clubs across Canada.
Did you know, pollinator bees have a vital role to play in creating a healthy ecosystem and a sustainable food supply? With this fun and exciting initiative, 4-H’ers across Canada will learn all about the amazing and fascinating work of Canada’s pollinators while getting outside to enjoy nature.
By registering, your club will receive the Proud to Bee a 4-H’er Kit, which includes:
- 100 packets of the Proud to Bee a 4-H’er Pollinator seed mix.
- Info cards you can share, detailing the importance of what you are doing to help support pollinator habitats and health in your community.
- Sales tracking sheet with information and recommendations on how to sell the seed packets if your club chooses to sell the seeds
Your club is free to use your seeds however you like – whether that’s planting a community garden, selling them as a fundraiser, handing packets out a community event, planting gardens in your homes, or whatever else you choose. 100% of any revenue from seed sales will stay with your club.

Proud to Bee a 4-H'er is part of 4-H Canada and its partner Syngenta Canada’s commitment to teaching our youth about the importance of building a sustainable future for all.
