This Friday, May 20th, is World Bee Day.
World Bee Day is held in recognition of the role bees play in sustaining food security, biodiversity, ecosystems health... and ultimately humans and many other species.
At Merici we will be holding a lunchtime stall on Friday 20 May offering honey joys for $1 and beeswax lip balm for $3 made by students.
Proceeds will be donated to Wheen Bee Foundation, towards the Rita Fund for Australian Native Bees.
Here is a link to their website: Wheen Bee Foundation – Donate to help recovery needs of our bees and beekeepers.
The purpose of our event is to raise awareness of the vital importance of bees and all pollinators, the threats they face, the many benefits they provide us and actions every individual can take to protect them.
We hope to see you there!
