How can I help bring about change in the world? The truth is that bees are disappearing at an alarming rate and facing possible extinction. If bees go extinct, the world as we know it will change. Can you imagine a world with no flowers? Einstein said, “If the bees disappeared off the face of the Earth, man would only have four years left to live.” Many modern scientists have labeled the honey bee crisis as the single most environmentally threatening issue we face today.
We are passionate about giving our community something tangible they can do to help the bees. By feeding the bees, we are all beekeepers now. We work with local schools to plant educational pollinator meadows and build pollinator education programs. We work with local pollinator action groups to support local legislation changes that prioritize the well-being of honey bees. We help distribute mushroom extract medicinal treatment feeders to heal the bees of the viruses and diseases plaguing them. We educate our community on how to help at home, in their neighborhood, in the community, and the world.
Between pesticides, natural disasters, harmful parasites, global warming and non-organic agriculture practices, honey bees are disappearing at an alarming rate. It’s estimated that in some regions, as many as 90% of the bees have disappeared. Bees pollinate billions of plants each year, including millions of agricultural crops. Without them many of the foods we eat on a daily basis would be in jeopardy. Our collective efforts are needed to save the bees as they play a sacred and pivotal role in our complex, interconnected ecosystem, allowing countless species to harmoniously coexist.
