No Bees, No Food.
You know the old saying, no farmers, no food? Well, an equally appropriate one may as well be: no bees, no food. Honey bees pollinate plants and flowers that result in nearly a third of the food we eat. Without them, those plants cannot reproduce and grow. In case you hadn’t heard, bees are in serious trouble, and they need our help.
Since the mid-1990s, bees have been mysteriously disappearing in a phenomenon called Colony Collapse Disorder, or CCD. CCD has been linked to environmental pathogens, loss of habitat and increased exposure to pesticides.
While few lawmakers or big businesses are taking the problem of the bee decline seriously, a wide array of community activism has sprung up to help protect this important link in our food chain.
Join the movement, step up and take part in saving the honey bees! You can help honey bees in your neighborhood by taking the honey bee haven pledge and then following the easy steps to create a haven for bees in your yard or outdoor space. Through these active steps you can become part of the environmental change!
Our mission is to educate communities on the decline of the bee population, the effect that it can have on our livelihood, and small ways they can help in transforming the current situation. Small actions can evolve into major changes. Join us in the revolution to reverse the shifting decline of the bee population!
