On December 4, 2019, the Common Council adopted Resolution 3718
designating the City of Greenfield as a Bee City USA. The purpose of
the designation is to educate people of all ages regarding the importance of bees.
Bee City USA is a nonprofit national organization which encourages city leaders to celebrate and raise awareness of the contribution bees and other pollinators make to our world by endorsing a set of commitments, defined in a resolution, for creating sustainable habitats for pollinators.
A designated Bee City USA is expected to annually celebrate being a Bee City USA community with a proclamation and public awareness activities; publicly acknowledge commitment to the program through signage and web links; and annually report activities to Bee City USA to renew the designation. The Greenfield Beautification Committee has partnered with the City as a liaison and facilitator of educational programming on bees for the community.
