Bee Good!

Bee The Good

The plight of the honey bee and the repercussions of the decline of pollinators has been all over the news. The struggles of ex-cons  and the re-incarcination of repeat offenders is also in the news.  I’m so happy to say that someone had the incredibly wonderful idea of offering a Bee Keeping Course to inmates. Not only does this skill give them an actual vocation, and a certificate to prove their expertise, but it’s an important conservation issue that affects all of us, whether we believe it does or not.

I give a hearty “BRAVO” to the American Honey Bee Protection Agency based in Austin, Texas, and to the Travis County Sheriff’s Office for agreeing to start this program.

Follow them on Facebook!

It’s a Good Friday, indeed! Bee Good!
