HOME > A Message from Healthy Food Healthy Bees


1 Jan 2016

I hope you all had a successful growing season and that your bees are still going strong! At the end of our first year of the Healthy Food Healthy Bees Connection, we have 35 farmers and beekeepers signed up! I am pleased with such a great turnout for year one, and am hoping we can double that number in 2016. Please spread the word to your fellow farmers and beekeepers! They can sign up at www.northernbeenetwork.org.
 
During this first year, many of our farmers live in counties where we had no beekeepers signed up. So it is important that we reach out to as many beekeepers as possible to get good coverage.
 
If you were successful in connecting with a farmer/beekeeper this year as part of our program, I would love to hear from you. How did it work out? Any suggestions for others? More information about the project is available on Facebook, https://www.facebook.com/healthyfoodhealthybeesconnection/, and in the 2015 Report.
 
If you would like to help out in spreading the word about the Healthy Food Healthy Bees Connection, please send me an email and you can join our team. If you have any suggestions for ways I can reach out to the farmers/beekeepers please let me know!
 
Enjoy your day and thank you for being part of this great effort!
