August is Bee Aware Month in New Zealand, and I’ve joined forced with the National Beekeepers’ Association (NBA) to help promote the importance of bees in our gardens, and what you can do at home to help bees thrive.
To celebrate Bee Aware Month the NBA recently ran a competition for school children, asking them to create videos that showed the importance of bees and how we can help them survive.
I was blown away by the entries – I’ve included the winning videos below so you can check them out.
The three winning schools were Stonefields, Limehills and Opua each receing prizes donated by Palmers Gardenworld and Ecostore.
First Place: Stonefields School, Auckland
Second Place: Limehills School, Invercargill
Third Place: Opua School, Bay of Islands
Cooking with honey – this week’s recipes
To celebrate Bee Aware Month I’ll be posting new honey-inspired recipes every week.
This week it’s Sticky Honey Drumsticks, an easy weeknight family meal that uses ingredients you're likely to have handy in your fridge and pantry; and the super simple and delicious Sesame Honey Kisses.
National Beekeepers' Association of New Zealand
I’ve joined forces with New Zealand’s National Beekeepers’ Association to work on projects that help promote and protect kiwi honeybees.
Together we hope to spread the message that bees are vitally important and that they need our help to survive.
