Building a Sustainable Future, One Flower at a Time

A DAY FOR HONEY BEES... A PROGRAM FOR THE ENTIRE YEAR.
Plans are now fully underway for the 2012 launch of the BeeAlive Trees For Bees
Project™, whose mission serves to help restore the honey bee population. An
important part of this ambitious and much-needed initiative is the support of
environmentally-concerned organizations, which are actively raising public awareness
of the importance of the honey bee to the future of mankind. In keeping with this
goal, we are proud to announce that BeeAlive is becoming a sponsor of the National
Honey Bee Day Program. National Honey Bee Day is Saturday, August 20th and this
year’s theme is “Building a Sustainable Future, One Flower at a Time.”
Although the first official National Honey Bee Day didn’t take place until 2009, some say it was high time for the buzzing little honey makers to gain some public recognition. Indeed, the work that honeybees have done since their arrival on planet
earth has long been taken for granted. The founders of the National Honey Bee Day program were determined to bring some positive press for the often misunderstood creatures. Now including over 49 programs across 22 states, NHBD states three
goals to form their mission statement: promotion and advancement of beekeeping, educating the public to honey bees and beekeeping, and making the public aware of environmental concerns affecting honey bees. All the programs participating in
NHBD must embody these ideals, selling locally grown honey and recruiting new individuals to become beekeepers.
