Shakespeare, Bees and Your Biz
“For so work the honey bees, creatures that by a rule of nature,
teach the art of order to a peopled kingdom.”
William Shakespeare 1564-1616 Henry V Act 1 Scene 2
We call ourselves beekeepers, but as a technical and pragmatic reality, they keep us. Over the eons, Nature’s records indicate, that friendships and partnerships can confront a few hiccups or out-and-out disasters. Some regroup and survive. Some don’t. Humanity is in the midst of a slow-motion world-wide food catastrophe.
Finding win-win solutions during a crisis calls for collective higher-than-average levels of cooperation if the partnership – meaning humanity – is to survive. Honey bees could survive without humans. The reverse is no longer the case. Friends of Honeybees has created its Buzz for Bees program, working with merchants and shop operators to connect a benefit to your bottom line with customer awareness and support honeybee research and local beekeeping activities in your community .
Whether you own or help operate a local restaurant, cafe or neighborhood tavern, wine shop, bookstore, boutique, tattoo parlor, plant nursery, grocery, gallery, jewelry or gift shop … you can quietly educate your clientele about how much honeybees, honey bee researchers and you appreciate their concern and assistance.
Friends of Honeybees is committed to following the honeybees’ own business model, which is win-win.
Our staff will work with you to customize an educational handout or handbill insert that describes the Buzz for Bees program and your business’ commitment to preserving and protecting honeybees through education, local activities and research.
