We often take nature for granted. We don’t think about the pivotal role that all of life’s creatures play. However, World Honey Bee Day gives you the perfect opportunity to celebrate and honor the incredible honey bee.
The day recognizes both the honeybee and the beekeepers who tend the hives. It also encourages everyone to enjoy and buy locally grown honey.
We can all do our bit to provide the honey bees with a supportive environment. When we plant wildflowers, orchards, and other flowering plants, we support pollinators such as honey bees. They depend on the nectar of a variety of plants for their survival. We depend on honey bees for our survival, too! Without their pollinating abilities, many nutritious plants wouldn’t reproduce.
Besides, their delicious honey is a bonus.
How to observe #WorldHoneyBeeDay
My grandmother believed in adding local honey to her morning tea and recipes in place of sugar.
