The Honey Bee Is The Glue That Holds It All Together
From honey to almonds, to fruits and vegetables, bees are responsible for one in every three bites of food humans consume. They are important keystone species in environmental ecosystems, both human and animal alike. We are proud to support an indigenous led project honey project in La Sierra Nevada of Colombia inspired by an eleven year old young apiarist. The goal of this project is to generate income and promote the conservation of water, forests, and biodiversity.
This project seeks to recover meliponiculture as part of the ancestral knowledge of the indigenous communities of the La Sierra Nevada of Santa Marta and to project this activity as a sustainable income alternative through technical assistance, provision of equipment, resources, and infrastructure that allows improving the quality of life of the families involved, guaranteeing the conservation of ecosystems and water sources
