GIVE A GIFT TO THE BEES ON #GIVINGTUESDAY

Giving Tuesday

Ways to Give

Donate

On this Giving Tuesday, think about what the honeybees do for you and your family. Bees pollinate 80% of the world’s plants, and a third of our food supply.  Without them, our lives would be devoid of some of our favorite foods – like strawberries, broccoli, almonds, and coffee!  They are responsible for $15 billion dollars in annual U.S. agricultural crops, but honeybee populations are dropping off at an alarming rate.  The USDA estimates that 45% of our agricultural bee colonies died off last year alone.  We can’t let them die off.

Please donate today to HoneyLove, the 501c(3) nonprofit organization working to save the honeybee and educate and inspire urban beekeepers. Be a part of a worldwide community of HoneyLovers who share your vision of a healthy, sustainable future where honeybees are safe and our nation’s crops are, too.
Your donation funds our volunteer programs to spread awareness about honeybees, educate thousands of Southern Californians, and advocate on the causes of and solutions for colony collapse disorder and other threats facing honeybees.  We need bees, and they need all of us to protect them.  The time is now to show your support!

 

THANK YOU!! YAY BEES!!

Advanced Beek Meeting: October Recap

Adv Beek Mtg 1
The new Advanced Beekeeper meetings began at HoneyLove on October 27. Held on the last Sunday of each month at 11am at the HoneyLove office, these meetings will fill the gap left by the Backwards Beekeepers and will help advance the learning of the L.A. treatment-free community.

Each meeting will have a member-speaker teaching us all something new as well as a general open Q&A and mentorship opportunities. Beekeepers of all levels are welcome to attend; HoneyLove also has more introductory-level beekeeper meetings on the 2nd Saturday of each month. Attendees are encouraged to join HoneyLove.org for extra benefits and the tax-deductible donation.

The October speaker was Josip Benko, a second-generation beekeeper with over 30 years of experience. Josip is from the former Czechoslovakia and shares the philosophy of observing the bees because they’ll show you what they need. He is also big on experimentation and customizing his hive boxes.

Josip brought several hive box samples; these are reduced for education purposes. He now uses 7 or 9 frame boxes because his observation is that bees don’t like even numbers.
