KEEP THE GLOBAL HIVE ALIVE

Small and vital, bees work together for the good of the whole ecosystem. They are excellent pollinators who bring the abundance of food to our gardens and farms by transferring pollen as they collect the nectar and pollen from the flowers.

A Community Arts Project initiated by Julie Armstrong to raise awareness of the importance of bees for pollination for a whopping 2/3 of our food production. Fruit and nuts including apples, almonds, avocados, cherries, kiwifruit, apricots, peanuts, blueberries, plums, mangos, oranges, peaches, pears, watermelon and honeydew melons. Vegetables and seeds including beans, broccoli, carrots,cucumbers, cauliflower, celery, onions, pumpkins, squash and sunflowers. Livestock feed including clover and lucerne all depend on honeybees for pollination.
