If you are anything like us, you’ve read or watched a panic-inducing documentary about the vanishing bee crisis our food system is currently facing.
Honey bees pollinate plants that produce about a quarter of the worlds food including apples, almonds, watermelons and beans. Bee populations have been dying off at a rate that the U.S Government deems economically unsustainable, as high as 30%.
Local heroes to us, The Beez Kneez, LLC, are one part of the solution. We sat down with educator, beekeeper and bicyclist Erin Rupp to learn a little more about Beez Kneez and to find out just how these gorgeous honey bees can give our community a much needed dose of hope.
