We are a Bee City Ambassador

Small Scale Farms is committed to doing everything we can to help save the bees. Bee City Canada is a national charity, doing the same. When we work together, we can help teach others what they possibly don’t already know about our precious pollinators. These “others” include schools, businesses, and municipalities. 

How can I help save the bees?

  • Buy from a local farmer. 
  • Insist upon non gmo, and do not purchase any products that have been sprayed with any type of systemic pesticide.
  • Increase native habitat by decreasing your lawn. Plant native species. 
  • Don’t be wasteful.
  • Teach others what you’ve learned.

Education is the key.

 

Bees are a super organism. We have much to learn from their ways. They are also what’s known as a bio-indicator… and what that means is we’d better start paying a lot better attention to what’s happening to them.

Because what’s happening to them, will happen to us.

Learn for yourselves why the bees are dying. Google it. Look into it for yourselves. Decide for yourself if you want to be someone who does what they can to help, or continues as a part of the problem. 

Just know that your habits matter. Your choices, matter. 

Please check back with us soon, we have a huge announcement and much more content to add!
