The Honeybee Foundation, a 501(c)3 non-profit dedicated to raising honeybee and pollinator awareness, developing and teaching holistic beekeeping methods, and providing pristine habitat for honeybees and all pollinators.
Honeybees are responsible for the pollination of the majority of the food crops that humanity has come to rely on. Without these essential pollinators our food supply would be seriously threatened. Bees also give us honey, beeswax and propolis.
Honeybee hives, as well as other native pollinators, have been dying out in increasingly alarming numbers for the past several decades. We believe (and research is beginning to corroborate) that the solution to the world-wide honeybee crisis is to reduce the environmental toxins affecting the bees, and to transform beekeeping methods that stress the hive. These actions support the restoration of the natural immune response of the bees to the diseases that are plaguing them.
Environmental Toxins + Stress = Compromised Immune Response
