Change the world one bee at a time.
We all know that the honey bee is vital for pollination and securing our food supply. But with the recent dramatic decline in honey bee populations around the world, the need to save, protect and nurture honey bees has become ever more pressing. With nothing more than a very lethargic response from their government agencies to the bee crisis, a USA based non profit is stepping up to the plate advocating for bee honey colony health exactly where it counts the most; in the minds of our future keepers. Meet the “Planet Bee Foundation” a great organisation that’s “Changing the world one bee at a time”.
Their Honey Bee Mission from their website:
“We are dedicated to creating a green minded generation by inspiring environmental stewardship and individual action through the teaching lens of the struggling honey bee.
We work with schools, nonprofits, summer camps, environmental centers, community gardens and businesses to build long lasting care of the struggling honey bee and the environment by presenting hands-on, educational workshops on location.
Planet Bee is working towards a future in which children and adults are exposed to global environmental issues, and given the tools to combat them. Today the American child spends an average of 7 hours a day in front of a screen inside, away from nature. Planet Bee’s educational programs take students outside, playing a crucial role in connecting children with the earth at the time when they are developing the values which will steer the course of their lives. Outdoor education not only brightens our planet’s future, but also improves students’ performance in school.
We envision a world in which all students feel empowered to take action for their planet, regardless of race, gender, class or location. Through our work, students will learn to love our planet and the importance of individual action in global movements, and will become more equipped to tackle environmental problems in the future.”
