“It’s better to BEE safe than to BEE sorry”

Events

 

 Dear Friends,
The BIG BUZZ this holiday season goes to a consortium of Brooklyn-based women entrepreneurs who get together each year to promote their innovative & unique designs at a sale which takes on critical social justice or environmental causes. This year, the group wishes to call attention to “Colony Collapse Disorder” (CCD) — the deadly, serious syndrome which causes honey bees to leave their hives & never return. The disappearing honey bees threaten our entire world food supply.
 
At the BEE AWARE HOLIDAY FAIR people can shop in a relaxed & warm setting while enjoying live classical guitar music as well as sweets & savories. Their will be a “Bee Aware” action table with free handouts & wildflower seed packets, a seasoned bee keeper to talk with, honey & honey related products.
 
We hope you can attend & bring your friends. The beautiful flyers (in two attachments to this email) were designed by one of our vendors, ClotheMySoul. Please open them so that you can see other products & vendors, and feel free to pass this on to let others know about this exciting event. Thank you so much. See you there!
