ABOUT FRIENDS OF THE BEE

FRIENDS OF THE BEE STARTED WHEN I WENT FOR A CHANCE RIDE ALONG TO OBSERVE A HONEYBEE RESCUE. SOMETHING ABOUT HOLDING A BARE HANDFUL OF LIVE BEES THAT DAY REALLY MADE AN IMPACT ON ME. 

 

SINCE THEN, I’VE THOUGHT ABOUT BEES AND HOW TO HELP THEM. AS I LEARNED MORE ABOUT WHAT IS TRULY NEGATIVELY IMPACTING HONEYBEES, I EVENTUALLY STARTED TO PUT TOGETHER A MODEL THAT I BELIEVED WOULD HELP TO SHORE UP THE HONEYBEE POPULATIONS. 

I ALSO BECAME AWARE OF JUST HOW MANY OTHER POLLINATORS THERE WERE, EACH HAVING ITS OWN NICHE IN THE ENVIRONMENT.

 

THERE HAVE BEEN SEVERAL TIMES ALONG THE WAY THAT I HAVE HAD DOUBTS ABOUT JUMPING INTO SAVING THE BEES FULL TIME. I’M DEFINITELY NOT AN APIARY EXPERT OR SCIENTIST, BUT I AM AWARE OF JUST HOW IMPORTANT THESE INCREDIBLE CREATURES ARE TO THE PLANET WE LIVE ON, AS WELL AS OUR FOOD SUPPLY.

 

I REMEMBER A POST THAT CAME ACROSS A FEW YEARS AGO THAT READ:

 

“WE DON’T NEED A FEW PEOPLE DOING ENVIRONMENTALISM PERFECTLY, WE NEED MILLIONS OF PEOPLE DOING IT IMPERFECTLY.”   

 

THAT BEING SAID, I’M ASKING YOU TO JOIN ME, TOGETHER WE CAN SAY THAT WE REALLY ARE, FRIENDS OF THE BEE. IF YOU’VE BEEN INVOLVED OR JUST GAINING INTEREST AND NOT SURE WHERE TO START, PLEASE REACH OUT TO ME AND LET’S TALK BEES. I BELIEVE THIS SHOULD BE A GROUP EFFORT!
