World Bee Day in Aus
A day devoted to recognising our ecosystem's MVPs has just passed; World Bee Day! So how did you celebrate? We're celebrating local Australian artisans who are dedicated to their love of bees and nature. They understand that these buzzy little critters play a vital role in keeping our planet healthy and our produce sustainable.
A world without bees would be a world without nourishment, beauty, and inspiration. But also a threat to our food, medicine, and the ecological webs our planet relies on.
Land development, deforestation, disease, and climate change threaten our bee population, and their numbers are under strife. So, it's up to us as a community to help them flourish.
We can do lots of little things to help these fuzzy friends along - like opting for organic produce or supporting your local beekeeper. But if you really want to get up close and personal with honey bees in your area, you'll need to check out Flow Hives!
Flow Hives are the Aussie invention taking eco-warriors and life-long beekeepers by storm as it simplifies the at-home-hive experience. Crafted from Australian Auracaria or Cedar, these Bcorp certified hives help you harvest honey from your backyard - in a gentle way. Just set up the flat-pack hive in your garden, introduce the bees, and you're on your way!
Inside the wooden frames of these hives are where the state-of-the-art Flow Frame technology sits. Invented by father-son duo Stu and Cedar Anderson, it's the most significant advancement to beekeeping since 1852. It is now possible to flick a switch (or more accurately, a "Flow Key") and watch pure, unprocessed, untouched honey run right out of the beehive and into your jar. Something pretty magic about that, huh!
By supporting a new swarm of bees and instilling a fondness for pollinators in your friends and family through your delicious homemade honey, you can influence the health of our bee populations.
But if an at-home hive isn't an option for you and your family right now - don't sweat it! Doing your best to support organic and local produce helps substantially, and of course -- help spread the word to "Save the Bees!"
