Support Research for the Bees

Bees are critical insects to human survival and planetary health.

We are collecting donations to send to the Canadian Bee Research Fund (CBRF), a scientific organization focused on keeping bee populations healthy.

The Canadian Bee Research Fund (CBRF) is a charitable not for profit organization that is a joint project of the Canadian Association of Apiculturists and the Canadian Honey Council. Members of the Canadian Association of Professional Apiculturists (CAPA) study, educate and administrate in the fields of apiculture and pollination. CAPA members engage in diverse pursuits, including: research into the secrets of bee and pollination biology and conservation initiatives to encourage wild species of bees. For more information go to www.capabees.com.

Every little bit helps with many thanks from the honey farm and the researchers.
