We can’t exist without the support of our community. We live and work here, and we love it when we can give back to make it a better place for everyone!
Learning is important at all ages, and we believe it is particularly important to highlight agricultural education in urban settings where it is not readily visible. This is why we’re proud to support the educational programs run by Apiaries and Bees for Communities (A.B.C.). With every lip balm purchased (large or small, custom or not), we donate $0.25 to A.B.C. It adds up quickly, and our goal every year is to top our previous year’s donation.
About Apiaries and Bees for Communities
Apiaries and Bees for Communities is dedicated to the resilient management of honey bees and pollinator guardianship and offers exceptional programming to rekindle your childlike wonder with the natural world. A.B.C’s popular school programs provide the opportunity to invite a “real-life beekeeper” in to the classroom to share information on honeybees, bumblebees, and solitary bees. With exciting games, great photos and props, A.B.C. offers an excellent presentation, which amplifies the Needs of Plants and Animals and Lifecycles curriculum. Unfortunately, not all schools have the funds to bring in outside educators. Partnerships, like the one we have with YYC Beeswax, have allowed us to start creating a fund that will help to bring dynamic presentations to schools with limited budgets.
