Why is running an environmentally conscious business important to you?
As an organization of local beekeepers, promoting environmentalism comes naturally. A healthy environment = healthy honey bees! The health of our honey bees is one of the first indicators of whether we are engaging in helpful or harmful environmental practices. So when honey bees are your business, it makes sense to want to take actions that promote the very best for honey bee health. Environmentalist is naturally built right in to our message.
What need drove or inspired your eco-related business or organization?
As an association, we provide education, support, and inspiration to beekeepers and to future beekeepers so we have the very best and most conscientious keepers of bees in our area.
