Earth Day Every Day At Beekind

Earth day is all about giving thanks to the incredible planet that we live on. Beekind thanks their honeybees for all that they do! Honeybees account for about 1/3rd of the food that sits on our table. Without them, we wouldn’t have any of our favorite Farmers’ Market goodies, or even coffee! To give back to the honeybees, “bee”-sure to plant some of their favorite spring flowers, such as California Poppies, Lupine, Clover, and Roses. If you are interested in learning more about saving the bees, come chat with the helpful folks at the Honey Beekind Kiosk!

Just like his grandmother used to make.

Here’s to another 10 years!
