Dear project's supporters,

 

It's that time of the year when amost all honey harvests are over, and the beekeepers need to renew their working tools and materials. Either because they are organic certified and to keep this status they need better working tools, or because they are in the process of getting the certification, we are helping them get (almost) everything they need for their beekeeping to be as good as it can.

 

It is thanks to you that we can support them, and help them become better and more climate-resilient honey producers!

 

Thank you for being here with us!

 

Kindly,

El Buen Socio's team and the beekeepers.

The honey season is here and our beekeepers are kept busy. Some of them have started harvesting some honey, and others are preparing for it very soon. Either way, workload is heavy around these darys, both for bees and its keepers!

We are hoping this season will be good and there'll be plenty of honey to keep our mouth fulls and buyers happy! Also, there hasn't been any climate related events so far, but in many parts of Mexico it's rain season and anything can happen (if it rains a lot or if it doesn't rain at all!).

Thank you as always for your support!

Firendly reminder: When you go buy your fresh honey, don't forget to buy certified honey from smallscale producers in order to support these hardworking families whose income depend on our smart choices!

Dear project supporters and donors,

Our project's activities are still paralyzed by the Covid-19 pandemic. The situation in Chiapas has been relatively contained, and our beekeepers are keeping it safe. Nevertheless, Mexico City is still fighting it's thoughest battle yet against the virus, adding up a growing number of people infected and people dying every day. This represents an umbreachable obstacle for our activities, especially because it keeps us from traveling. Fortunately, our field technician has been able to keep contact with some of the groups, and even visit some of them, providing us with enough information to know that they are healthy and preparing for this year's harvest season.

Please be sure that we are doing everything we can to keep the project active, looking forward to the future and hoping everything will be better soon.

We will keep you posted on any changes in our situation. Meanwhile, please take care of yourselve and your loved ones, and wear the mask!

 

Kindly,

El Buen Socio's team.

Dear donors,

 

We usually say 'No news, good news', but in this case, that isn't quite true...

The covid-19 pandemic in Mexico is still at it's peak, and the emergency measures haven't been lifted yet. This means we cannot visit the beekeepers, re-ignite our working plan and our communication with them is still very limited.

Although there are no covid-19 health related issues than we know of amongst the groups, the process of strenghtening the beehives to fight against climate change, preparing for the next harvest season, and getting the organic certificate are standing (almost) still. 

 

We will keep you posted once the situation has improved and our beekeepers are back on track!

 

Bee safe!

As you can imagine, the COVID-19 pandemic has hit hard the work of our beekeepers. Fortunately, we haven't heard about anyone in the groups we work with getting the virus, which could be deadly for them considering the vulnerability and marginalization conditions they live in (little or no running water, no access to hospitals or quality health care, impossibility to 'stay home', etc.). But their productive activities and income have been severely affected. Their harvest volume hasn't been great neither due to the climatic variations consequence of global warming, and the global markets are not currently compromising purchasing prices nor volumes. We have an enormous challenge in finding commercial partners who will be able and willing to pay fair prices for our beekeepers work, and in motivating the producers to keep working with their hives because eventually, the situation will get better!

Stay tuned for more updates, and stay safe at home (if you can)!
