Why I Adore Bees, And Why We Need Bees

Honey Bees Pollinate Flowers And Food Crops, And Make Honey!


October is National Bee Month, and I am on a mission to educate the public!

Starting with children: school begins in August, and I am sending out information to teachers to educate children about honey bees and the importance of protecting the species.

Honey is very healthy for you, and it is vital to our society to protect our little bees.

Bees are as important as water! We need our bees for pollination, and the benefit is not only honey, but increased produce!

I have many more ideas, but this is a great start with our children.


(Site owner's comment: Thank you so much Judy for taking the time to let us know about your plans. I absolutely agree: educating children is crucial - indeed, my love affair with bees definitely started in childhood, otherwise I probably would never have built this site!

If you'd like some free print outs for the children (educational and fun) you may like to check out the downloads on this link.

Good luck, thank you, and have a great time speaking out for the bees!)
