In honor of Earth Day we wanted to share a cool project on 🐝 . Besides the obvious benefit of honey these small insects create the beautiful lush 🌻flowering🌻 landscapes we look forward to come spring time, they are essential to the fruits and vegetables we pick up at the grocery store, and they create propolis which is a natural disinfectant and antibiotic. On top of all this beekeeping has therapeutic benefits.
@Hives4Humanity is a non-profit organization that encourages community connections through beekeeping. Based out of Vancouver they offer some really cool programming that fosters connectivity to nature and to each other. They are working to save the bees and build stronger communities. Both essential pieces of a healthy plant.
For those of you looking to do your part in your neighborhood as spring rolls around, guess what? It's so easy! Every one of you out there can help . Plant bee-friendly flowers without the use of pesticides. Plant native flowers in your area in pots on your doorstep, front yard, in your lawns, in your boulevards. Campaign to have them planted in public gardens, community spaces, meadows. Let's save our bees! #earthday #bringbackthebees #plant
