SAVE THE BEES!

April 6, 2017

Cheerios is doing an amazing campaign to #BRINGBACKTHEBEES! Over the past few years our honey bees have been disappearing because of our lack of wild flowers. If you go to cheerios.com they will send you a pack of free wildflower seeds to plan in your area and help save the bees!

We headed to the mountains in our area to plant our seeds. Hopefully the seeds blossom and the bees find them!

Anyone that knows me, knows that I want to have a bee hive someday! I can’t wait to have a hive in my backyard and harvest my own fresh honey. I even have a pinterest board for my future bee farm 🤗

Save the bees activist and future farmer at your service!!!

Soooooo Gavin and I parked our car in the trails parking lot of where were we planning to plant our seeds. All of a sudden this lady jumps out of the car RIGHT NEXT TO US and is waving at us. ITS MY AUNT and family friend! We have this running joke that we have telepathy because I  am her 20 year younger doppelgänger. What are the odds that we are both at the same random trail, at the same time, and park right next to each other??? Spooky!

    I love honey. In Ancient Greece honey was the Gods’ food. I can’t imagine living in a world without bees and honey… great initiative!

    Hi Kelsey:
    Love your post 🙂
    I was just speaking about this with another blogger. It is so unfortunate.
    Sadly, when I tried ordering the wildflowers, Cheerios said they are all gone 😢

    I know right?! So sad for our environment. I guess that is good and bad news that they are all gone. At least people are taking annotative and getting them!

    This is a wonderful thing you are doing, working to save bees! I received a beehive for Christmas back in 1973… the bees arrived in the Spring via US mail! I am planning to start a new hive next year after getting my neighbors comfortable with the idea of a hive… Two thoughts: checkout Dadant & Sons for everything beehive related, and setup a GoFundMe campaign to purchase your first hive & bees! I would support that!

    The bees need all the help they can get! Thanks for bringing this really important issue to light. If there are no bees, there is no “us.”

    Cheerios has given away 1.5 billion packets of seeds. Their goal was 100 million. They are all out.

    Nice article! Though I do think the lost of the honey bee population is decreasing for many other reasons besides the decreased numbers of wildflowers you did a good job highlighting one of those reasons. I knew there was a reason I loved honey nut cheerios!

    Too right the bees need our help – and we need theirs; most vegetables crops are pollinated by bees – no bees, no veggies! The other half of the bee story is about pesticides that come back in to the hive and kill the colony so we need to support our farmers who grow pesticide free and follow their example in our own gardens. Well done with your story getting people thinking and talking!
