The importance of bees is far greater than the honey they produce. Did you know that honey bees perform about 80% of all pollination worldwide? One out of three bites of food comes from a bee-pollinated plant. Numerous crops like apples, cranberries, melons, broccoli, and almonds would cease to exist without the hard-working bees’ contribution to our food system.
MEET THE MAKER:
Priscilla is a member of the Ontario Beekeepers Association.
Priscilla is a beekeeper from Brockville, ON with a passion for honeybee advocacy. She started her beekeeping journey as a hobby with her children. When they spread their wings and left home, she morphed into a “Queen Bee”, and Made By Bees took flight.
Ultimately Priscilla's curiosity expanded beyond understanding how bee colonies flourish and included learning the critical role they play in global food security. Honeybees pollinate many delicious crops such as fruits and nuts. If bees disappeared, the human diet would be much less diverse and of course, we would miss honey! Collectively bees fly 55,000 miles to make one pound of honey - that's twice around the world!
Made By Bees started as a small collaboration with community partners has blossomed into the lively organization we know today. Located on a pesticide-free property just outside of Brockville, Ontario, it generates sustainable solutions to everyday living and cultivates a bee-friendly haven.
Taking steps together to save our bees, the planet, and your food.
