I just stumbled on this Seattle honey producer and advocate for healthy bee habitats and had to share it here. They are called Urban Bee Company and I love their goals, stated here:
Simply put, we have three goals:
- Healthy Bees: Support health and biodiversity of bees, by using best practices inside the hive and providing plentiful and diverse forage outside of it.
- Informed Humans: We aim to educate the public about agriculture and pollinators, using the hive as a focal point to discuss our local and global food systems. With knowledge and positive examples, may we choose to do the right thing together.
- Resilient Habitats: Diverse, local forage will help not only bees and other pollinators, but humans as well. We can repair what we have ruined and participate in the mutually-dependent, permanently-sustainable system generously offered by the planet.
Sara, maybe you can open a Bainbridge Island branch? ;0)
