Knowledge is power! These are just a few groups who have allowed me to talk, share my honey bee knowledge and explain how vital they are to our ecosystem:
Local Rotary Clubs, Kiwanis Clubs, SIR, Garden Leagues, Girl Scouts, MEarth Summer Camps, Earthbound Farm's Farm Stand, Camp Venture, Carmel Valley Library, Monterey County Library, Carmel Unified School District/Pacific Grove Unified Students & Classrooms.
I seek out and make donations to organizations that are expanding in honey bee research & education efforts. They address the production, nutritional value, health benefits, economics, and/or quality standards of honey bees and honey. Here's who I've made donations to so far:
California State Beekeepers Assoc-2019
Project Apis m.-2017
Then National Honey Board-2016
El Nino Bee Lab-2015
UC Davis Honey and Pollination Center-2014
Pollination World is a proposed interactive, state-of-the-art educational center for visitors from around the world and Monterey Peninsula residents. Pollinators are declining at an alarming rate. Through education I will inspire communities and empower future generations to make positive decisions about the world we live in.
