You’re welcome! Also just a note, you can edit the proposal directly here instead of resubmitting (if that’s what you meant!).

Hey @dandelionshoneybees this proposal looks great. Such a nice initiative!
I was just wondering, who would be designing the NFTs? Would it be an open bounty for artists or do you have somebody already lined up for this?


Thank you so much for your feedback @ted.iv
Honestly, I am a neophyte when it comes to this whole process, as many are. You excellently phrased a question that’s come up for me as I architect this project.
I am an artist and have ideas of how I want the NFTs to look, but know that actualizing them is currently beyond my tech skills. (However, I do plan on learning how to design and mint.) Yes! I think it’s best for me to offer an open bounty to find artists that complement and add to what I’m conceiving, while also vetting from my known community. My vision is that this will be an ongoing project, so I anticipate collabing with many folks aligned with the vision.
Once again, so thankful for this very relevant feedback!

Current Balance: (NEAR): 5 N

Funding Period: March 2022, monthly

Requested Amount: $2000 USD in NEAR

Greetings Creatives DAO,

Dandelions And Honeybees DAO is new to web3 and the NEAR community, but super excited to be here! Here’s a link to our introduction, so you can learn a little bit more about our developing vision and goals, which shifts as we evolve:

NFT Pollinator Garden Gallery

Background information on the pollinator crisis:

Pollinators, especially honey bees, are the animals responsible for the existence of the majority of foods that we eat. If the pollinators disappear, we disappear. Starting in the 1990s, people observed large amounts of honey bees dying off- they called it colony collapse disorder. Many scientists of integrity blame seeds treated with toxic pesticide category called neonics along with other pesticides and herbicides for the widespread death of the honey bees. Unfortunately, companies such as Monsanto, now Novartis, have used propaganda, pressure and financial incentives to sway scientists, policy makers and beekeeper organizations to downplay the serious link between neonics and the decline of the pollinator population. As a result, pollinator populations continue to decline at an alarming rate.

For those who are interested in learning more, here is a link to an amazingly informative article written by Lee Feng in the Intercept The Pesticide Industry’s Playbook for Poisoning the Earth. It’s a long read. I have also reformatted it into an easily printable pdf doc Printer Friendly: The Pesticide Industry’s Playbook for Poisoning the Earth along with an accompanying doc with a numbered list of the 100 active links in the Intercept article The Pesticide Industry’s Playbook - Links Page.

Dandelions and Honeybees DAO supports our pollinators by educating people on sustainable consumer and gardening practices. Our vision is to generate a series of NFTs that represent pollinators and other elements found in a garden ecosystem. People who purchase the NFTs pledge their commitment to support the pollinator populations (honey bees, monarch butterflies, bats, etc.) by not buying chemically treated seeds and not using toxic chemicals in their gardens.

The NFTs are going to have a cosmic look and integrate sacred geometry, symbols, numerology, etc. Each NFT represents an insect or other element of a garden ecosystem and features facts about neonics and toxic pesticides/herbicides, resources for sustainable seed companies, green pest/weed control, and a pollinator friendly planting guide, as well as information about the lifeform represented by the NFTs they purchased. Owners will receive access to this information in text, audio and video format.

The NFTs will be displayed in a web3 gallery, the NFT Pollinator Garden Gallery. There will be an option to receive hardcopy versions of the NFTs and the Pollinator Garden Gallery will eventually be featured in “real life” exhibits as well.

I’m an artist, am collaborating with one visual artist so far, and plan to offer bounties to collab with additional artists, digital artists and web3 designers.

We realize this expansive vision contains many components and are creating a timeline that compliments and flows with the organic growth of the project.

Thank you for taking time to read this. Here’s to resonating!


I would love to get involved in this project. I have a background in flower preservation with eco poxy. Maybe I can make some specimen art for gallery


Thanks so much for this info!

Usually Creatives requires more than one council member but since you are new to the space and a pioneer for your community, if you can commit to onboarding at least one more council to the AstroDAO by April, I feel it’s okay! I will allow the other moderators @creativesdao-council & community to give their input or propose other solutions they may find aligned. I am also happy to assist in the onboarding process with you if needed.


@adrianseneca @dandelionshoneybees I agree, to get started out it can be necessary to just have one council member, but with a clear outline towards onboarding more council members as part of the plan, it’s ok with me


Beautiful! Thanks for adding more detail!

Next step is to place this information (along with all the budget information that will be needed to actualize this project; research & draft nft, design & mint, set up gallery) into a separate post that will be linked to the original above. You can create the separate post the same way you created this original one with a different title… something like “[Proposal] - NFT Pollinator Gallery”. The original one (where we are commenting can be something like; “[Proposal] Dandelions and Honeybees DAO March 2022.”

You can take a look at how other people formatted their proposals to include the links of their separate proposals in the comments above!

Hoping this makes sense… if not let me know! Happy to try to clarify better :slight_smile:


Thank you @adrianseneca. I’ll take a closer look at the resources you shared with me! Much appreciation!

Hi again @ted.iv, @adrianseneca I have a question. I submitted my poll via the link, but don’t see the gov.near.org link on the bottom left hand corner of my submitted poll. Should I fix that and if yes how? Thanks in advance!! :raised_hands:t5:

I see @hevertonharieno has already linked it in the comments of the poll, so that’s fine for now!
