There are many bee supporters out there. Here is a list of some of the ones we are proud to support. Please visit their pages and take a look at the great things they are doing to help us all understand the serious issues the bees are facing.
Bee City USA certification is both an honor and a responsibility. Launched in 2012, the Bee City USA program endorses a set of commitments, defined in a resolution, for creating sustainable habitats for pollinators, which are vital to feeding the planet. Cities, towns and communities across America are invited to make these commitments and become certified as a Bee City USA affiliate.
We are “natural” beekeepers – by which is meant – we refrain from placing chemicals and antibiotics in our hives. We don’t believe so much honey or pollen should be removed from a colony it needs to be fed to stave off starvation. We think maximum genetic diversity should be encouraged in stocks that are acclimatized to the environments in which they live.
This website is dedicated to providing resources for beekeepers of all levels who would like to provide a safe and nurturing home for their bees. We provide educational instruction on how to keep bees without the use of antibiotics, miticides, fumigants or other chemical inputs, and how to market raw honey that is unadulterated by heating, filtration or any other treatment.
The Beesource Beekeeping website was started in 1997 by a hobbyist beekeeper and became an online community for beekeepers and beekeeping in 1999. It has experienced organic, word of mouth grassroots growth ever since. Today, Beesource.com has over 14,000 registered members and is the most active online beekeeping community of its kind in the world.
