You can save our hard-working honey bees.
Bees play an incredibly important role in our world. In fact, an estimated 1/3 of the human food supply comes from bee pollinated plants. Unfortunately, our bees are in trouble. The bee population is declining at an unsustainable rate due to disease, hive pests, pesticides, climate change, and habitat loss. Additionally, Bees require a lot of space. Bees must collect nectar from two million flowers to make just one pound of honey, and one bee will make only 1/12 of a teaspoon of honey in her lifetime!
In order to fight this decline, Bee Girl helps farmers establish "Bee Pasture," or land set aside specifically for bees. Through research, development, and education, Bee Girl ensures there is sufficient habitat for bees, "nectar flow" for beekeepers, and nutritionally and economically improved pasture for farmers and their livestock.
GreaterGood.org partners with Bee Girl to plant, research, and develop pasture for bees, and also help educate farmers on how to utilize our the latest research!
You can help provide healthy habitat for bees nationwide. Just $12 provides four square feet of bee pasture that feeds 500 bees.
The Bee Girl's mission is to inspire and empower communities to conserve bees, their flowers, and our food system.
