Casual musings from one woman to the world

Honey Bee Haven

Just a quick Sunday night bedtime note:  I stumbled across this cool link from the PAN (Pesticide Action Network) website that, in a nutshell, maps pesticide-free/bee-friendly zones throughout the US of A.  What a beautiful thing and what an incredibly sad thing, all at once.  Beautiful because there are people networking to restore our rapidly diminishing bee populations, which have been devastated due to the disgustingly broad and over-used applications of neonicotinoid pesticides/insecticides, which are absorbed by plants and toxic to bees.  Sad because of the very content of that last sentence.  Please do all that you can to learn about the harmful effects of pesticide use both at home and on the farm and support organic farming by voting with your dollars at the super market.  Access the Honey Bee Haven and map your home, if applicable.  Also, for a $50 donation, you can receive one of those cute signs to post with pride.  I plan on getting mine very soon 🙂
