Where is my $$$ going?
These are some of the causes/projects The Bee Line Team has joined (when they are not creating the best organic hemp wick on planet earth, of course). Some of this wouldn't be possible without your help. Thanks for choosing Bee Line, a company based on love, respect and knowledge.
- This year Bee Line donated $1,000 to Sergei Boutenko and his wild edibles documentary, an instructional video on how to safely and sustainably enjoy the most common weeds and wild edibles of the world. Helping food sovereignty become a reality. See more info below:
- Also we are giving Ryan Burden $1,000 for a documentary created to raise awareness about the risks of genetically modified foods (GMOs). Telling Monsanto and all the enemies of earth to go F* themselves:
- We gave Pule 25,000 for restoring ancient Taro patches and hopefully a future bee sanctuary. Pules place is called Keakua Farm in Honokohau. Cultivation of Taro (Hawaiian Kalo), the staple crop from which poi is made, declined precipitously in Hawaii over the last century. The art of doing so was almost lost. Taro patches are kipuka for Hawaiian culture. Here the youth can connect to the land, and learn and practice the ways of their elders. Hawaiian values come to life: aloha 'āina (love the land), malama 'āina (take care of the land), laulima (work together), kōkua (help without being asked), and, of course, the responsibility of taking care of the elder brother Haloa. Nothing connects a person to the earth quite so effectively as standing knee-deep in the squishy mud of a taro patch.
- Kea (World famous Mustache Man) also does bee rescue. Cause Bees are amazing!
