We are thrilled to let you know about a local project that speaks to everything we love. Nature and bees and communities working together with a common purpose.
We have partnered with some very committed locals and the Beechworth Urban Landcare & Sustainability Group (BULS) to plant 10,000 trees across our region over the next three years.
We’re calling it 10,000 Trees for Bees and together with BULS we will plant trees that sustain bees and native pollinators. Trees that provide pollen and nectar to all things that buzz. Think of it as planting a year round pollen picnic for future generations of insects, birds and bees.
Over the next 3 years, together we will plant trees to sustain bees and native pollinators, regenerate public and private land and capture carbon through the powerful role of trees in combating climate change.
The trees will be planted around Beechworth and surrounding areas in northeast Victoria with regular opportunities for the local community to join in the planting.
As a member of 1% for the Planet, we give 1% of our Bee Cause sales revenue to our not-for-profit partners. And our first partnership is with BULS! We are donating the trees, stakes and tree guards for the 10,000 trees and together with a tribe that love to get their hands dirty, we’ll be doing our first plantings this winter.
