School presentations on the Honey Bee
Did you know that one bee contributes only just one-twelfth of a teaspoon of honey? Over her entire life?
And there are 3 teaspoons in a tablespoon. So for one single tablespoon of honey, that took the life's work of 36 bees. 1/12th of a teaspoon of honey over a lifetime seems like such a small contribution.
But bees don't think that way. It's the hive that matters. It's the collective work of each individual bee that adds up over the entire hive that counts. All they have to do is their small part, and the rest works out. Naturally.
You are probably well aware that bee populations all over the globe are declining. Bees are in trouble right now. And I don't think one single person can save the bees all on their own.
But, just like the little bee contributing just 1/12th of a teaspoon of honey over their entire life, you can do your small part to help.
And that small part in fact is the most important thing anyone can do. Because without the individual there is no collective force. And it's the collective force of more and more individual beekeepers starting their first hives that we need most right now.
Your seemingly small impact on saving the bees by starting your first hive is not small at all, it's exactly what would help the most.
Even taking the first step to simply learn how to keep bees is a move in the right direction.
We have given talks to schools with student grades 1 thru 5 in our area and would be honored to do so for your school if scheduling permits. If you'd like to start your first hive, or would like more information about the Honey Bees If interested please contact us with your information by CLICKING HERE. Thank you. Allen and Tim
