Did you know that you can keep bees in your backyard? Even small urban yards (or roof tops!) can play host to a hive of honey bees, and the folks who tend them can enjoy honey, beeswax, pollen and of course, the bees themselves. In fact, a healthy hive can produce several gallons of delicious, healthful honey every year.

Jun 16th - All Day
Seven years ago the U.S. Senate’s unanimous approval and designation of a week in June as “National Pollinator Week” marked a necessary step toward addressing the urgent issue of declining pollinator populations. Pollinator Week has now grown to be an international celebration of the valuable ecosystem services provided by bees, birds, butterflies, bats and beetles. The growing concern for pollinators is a sign of progress, but it is vital that we continue to maximize our collective effort. The U.S. Secretary of Agriculture signs the proclamation every year.
