National Pollinator Week 2019 runs from June 17 to 23. This special week, approved and designated by U.S. Senate 12 years ago, is meant to celebrate our pollinators and all they do for us. It's a time to recognize their importance and what we can do to support and protect them.
Wedderspoon is proud to partner with local and national organizations to help support our pollinators. Keep reading to learn more about our commitment to bees and how you can do your part to help support them too!
The Whole Kids Foundation's Bee Grant Program
We've recently partnered with The Whole Kids Foundation to help provide a unique learning opportunity for students and to #givebeesachance. We're proud to share that through support from our Bee Grant, a school will have the chance to learn from an educational bee hive. We believe it's important for children to learn from a young age the impact that bees and other pollinators have on their ecosystem.
The Non-GMO Project
As a long-time partner of The Non-GMO Project, we are excited to participate in the #PollinatorChallenge during National Pollinator Week. Stay tuned on social media for more information in the coming days! The Non-GMO Project is committed to preserving and building the Non-GMO food supply, educating consumers and providing verifications.
The Rodale Institute
Wedderspoon is a proud partner of the Rodale Institute, an organization dedicated to pioneering organic farming through research and outreach. We support Rodale’s “Your 2 Cents Program,” which unites producers, consumers, researchers and educators to launch the next generation of organic farmers.
Wedderspoon also sponsors a hive at The Honeybee Conservancy at the Rodale Institute, which began in 2012 in response to the major health problems that have decimated the honeybee population in North America.
