Our Micro-Prairie Saga: Bees, Grants, and Neighborhood Drama!

Our micro-prairie journey has been a rollercoaster of emotions! From the initial excitement of eliminating yardwork and attracting bees to the thrill of receiving a grant for our pollinator-friendly yard, it's been quite the ride. But not everyone in the neighborhood was buzzing with joy - some complained about the 'unkempt' look and the influx of bees. Despite the drama, we're loving our little slice of prairie heaven and even inspiring some neighbors to join the movement! Let's see what the internet has to say about our unconventional yard choice and the neighborhood divide it's created!

NTA. Let the bees be! 🐝🌼 Doing good for the environment.
