We hope you are taking every precaution to be safe during this challenging time. When crises strike, even the bee colony responds as one, and works together as one. We take the health and wellness of our collaborators, partners, beekeepers, and stakeholders seriously as we all work to overcome our common challenge. We are thinking of you, your family, and your pollinators, and hope all stay healthy during this challenging time.
We continue our work providing leadership, education, action, and development for pollinators. We know you want to protect pollinators, strengthen your beekeeping and agricultural associations and business, and take action to support the health and sustainability of honey bees, native pollinators, and the keepers of the ecosystem. We can still do so much, even from home and through the internet. We will be providing ideas through our blog on activities for you and your children. You can take action for pollinators and a healthy ecosystem with our partners. You can listen to our podcasts for ideas and education.
Our national crisis will conclude, and we will get back to our routines. We will plant flower seeds for pollinators. Beekeepers will add frames to their hives and spring will bloom for our bees. Our city and county bee ordinances need revamped, and noxious weed ordinances re-written to value milkweed and other pollinator supportive wildflowers. Planning for the future has never been more important. At LEAD for Pollinators we are working with your future in mind. Visit our website, check out our blog, our podcasts, and our future conference, Becoming 21st Century Leaders: Women in Beekeeping and Agriculture.
Take care of yourselves and your family, and feel free to visit our website, take action with our partners, and contact us.
