It’s Christmas Eve, so let’s all celebrate by raising a glass of mead to bees, the hardworking pollinators who make our holiday feasts possible. Without bees to pollinate them, about a third of our food crops would be in serious trouble. That’s why Heifer International provides bees to farmers around the world to boost crop yields. And, of course, bees also provide honey, a delicious multitasking sweetener with preservative and medicinal qualities.
Have you gotten all your shopping done yet? If not, get busy! For $30 you can honor a friend or family member with a hive of bees.
