August 19th is National Honey Bee Day! Honey bees perform about 80% of the world's pollination, which includes pollination for nuts, fruits, and vegetables. Honey bee numbers are in decline but there are things you can do to help. You can plant bee-friendly flowers in your yard, and avoid using chemicals or pesticides on your lawn. You can also support local beekeepers by purchasing honey from a local farm. So go buy a jar of sweet delicious honey and do your part to save the honey bees! Here are some delicious cocktails to enjoy while you plant your new bee friendly flower garden. Conservation has never been this sweet.
