August 21 National Honey Bee Awareness Day

Bees are certainly interesting creatures. They fly over 55,000 miles and collect pollen from some 2,000 flowers to create one pound of honey. They make the honey for their own food source in the colder months but we, as people, keep taking it from them! Today is always celebrated on the third Saturday of August as designed by the Secretary of State (US) Thomas J. Vilsek in 2009. It is sponsored by Pennsylvania Agriculture.

How to celebrate – Start your own hive business. Have some honey. Plant a garden have a shorter way to go to get back to the hive.
