Honey Bees by Andrea and Lulu

Honey Bees are important because the help plants grow. They also make the fruits we eat, sweet. At the yard there are tons of honey bees. They collect nectar and pass it from flower to flower. The seal that prevents water from flowing at the bottom of the toilet is called beeswax, beeswax also comes from bee too.

The bees make honey and it is sweet and healthy. They make the plants grow longer. They are better than normal animals. Thousands of years to now we still like honey snacks. They pollinate flowers to make honey.

2024 Renewal

We already have 2 different pollinator gardens. One is primarily fruit trees, like pear or apple. The other uses plants that are indigenous to Alberta and that encourage different pollinators. We added Bee baths so that bees can get the water they need in the summer. This year we have built some bee houses that we are going to out in the fall. It has been successful.
