The Karma Honey Project is dedicated to helping protect the environment through the creation of new bee hives, teaching Children about the importance of agriculture and honey bees as well as funding further research into what is causing the global extinction of bees.
Why the Karma Honey Project is Important
Over 40 percent of the bees have died in the last 5 years. Bee's pollinate over 70 percent of the food we eat. Without bee pollination we face a global catastrophe. Please consider helping us with this very noble cause #Savethebees
How Donations are Put to Use
- Creation of new hives to repopulate the affected honey bee population.
- Helping small farmers to pollinate organic crops on traditional and urban farms.
- Donating to university based research to help find solutions to the problems affecting bees.
- Educating both children and adults on the importance of pollinators.
- Planting bee friendly fields of wildflowers and sunflowers to forage from.
Why are bees so special?
There are a number of reasons why bees are an important part of our ecosystem, one of the most understandable ways is that they actually help to pollinate many of our fruits and vegetables! Did you know that bees are the only insect that produces food eaten by humans?
A colony of bees consists of 20,000-60,000 honeybees and one queen. Worker honey bees are female, live for about 6 weeks and do all the work. It's truly a work of art to see these #bossbabe female bees out foraging for pollen and nectar, building out the bee hives, and running the whole show.
Larger than the worker bees, the male honey bees (also called drones), have no stinger and do no work at all. All they do is mating. In fact, before winter or when food becomes scarce, female honeybees usually force surviving males out of the nest. I am thrilled to support this endeavor as it's a vital part of our ecosystem, and you know I thrive on supporting strong women, bees included.
