Speaking of Bees

This lovely little note has been in our bathroom for a while now, courtesy of Michael's students at SFU, who did a project on the plight of bees.

Our friend Clelie is part of the BackYard Bounty Collective. She helps people learn how to keep bees in an urban setting.

Save the Bees Petition- click here
It's URGENT! If you need convincing read this:
Quietly, globally, billions of bees are being killed off threatening our crops and food. But a global ban of one group of pesticides could save bees from extinction.

Four European countries have begun banning the poisons and bee populations are recovering. But chemical companies are lobbying hard to keep all killer pesticides on the market. A global outcry now for a ban in the US and EU, where debate is raging, could provoke a total ban and a ripple effect around the world.

Let’s build a giant global buzz calling for these dangerous chemicals to be outlawed in the US and EU until and unless they are proved to be safe. Sign the petition to save bees!
