They need friends too

We were not thinking that it will be so difficult. Our goal was to teach kids and public about the connection between  our food and pollination. But, it was not only about education. We found that it´s very important also to help children loose their fear from bees. This important step was the missing piece of bees education, and now we finished our puzzle. We are not teaching, we are creating friends of bees. 

We had finished our sixth beekeeping season in our apiary, and we are proud, that we made hundreds and thousands kids and adult friends of bees. Now is the time to go further.

From this year we extend our program on solitary bees, butterflies and bumble bees. We are preparing new experiences to make new friends of all pollinators. They will see how solitary bees are securing future for their posterity, how colony of bumblebees is building their home and how is it possible that this beautiful butterfly used to be ugly caterpillar. Cross your fingers for us to make year 2019 a year of pollinators. Because they also need friends. Thank you.
