WHOLE KIDS FOUNDATION
Wedderspoon is bee-yond excited to support The Bee Grant Program funded by the Whole Kids Foundation. The Whole Kids Foundation is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) founded by Whole Foods Market and guided by the same values, principles, expertise and standards for quality ingredients, food production methods and nutrition.
The Bee Grant program allows for schools and non-profit organizations to receive support for educational beehives, so students can observe bees up close and learn about the vital role these pollinators play in our food system.
The Non-GMO Project
The Non-GMO Project, a non-profit 501(c) (3) organization, offers North America’s only third-party verification and labeling for Non-GMO food and products. The Non-GMO Project is committed to preserving and building the Non-GMO food supply, educating consumers and providing verifications.
Wedderspoon is a proud partner of the Rodale Institute, a non-profit 501(c) (3) organization, dedicated to pioneering organic farming through research and outreach. Wedderspoon supports Rodale’s “Your 2 Cents Program,” which unites producers, consumers, researchers and educators to launch the next generation of organic farmers.
The Honeybee Conservancy at the Rodale Institute
Wedderspoon 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.
Mind Body Green
Wedderspoon is proud to be a partner of the Mind Body Green Community. Revitalize is mindbodygreen's annual invite-only wellness weekend bringing together 250 thought leaders. The weekend is anchored by content sessions, workshops, mindful meals, workouts, and community conversations - all designed to leave guests feeling inspired and revitalized.
At the 5th annual event this year, mindbodygreen and Wedderspoon teamed up to bring awareness to the devastating crisis our global honeybee population is facing. In honor of Pollinator Month in June, mindbodygreen created a community garden with local, Arizona desert-friendly plants. Revitalize guests could choose their own plant and pot it, add a "Sweet Wishes from Wedderspoon" sticker and add it to the wall -- effectively growing a collective garden together as one. At the end of the weekend, mindbodygreen donated the plants to Phoenix Children's Hospital - paying it forward and spreading happiness & awareness.
The Bee Cause Project
Wedderspoon is buzzing with excitement to be welcomed into the family at The Bee Cause Project as a Honeycomb level sponsor! Wedderspoon’s commitment to pollinators is demonstrated through this incredible investment in the Bee Cause Project, an organization cultivating future stewards of the natural world with observation honeybee hive programs in schools. The mission of The Bee Cause Project is to provide youth with opportunities to understand, engage, and learn from honey bees in order to connect with the natural environment while developing STEAM skills.
To date, the Bee Cause Project has provided 330 hives, bee wise guides, and program support to schools and organizations in all 50 states and in 4 countries. With each hive providing habitat for approximately 40-60,000 honeybees, the program is also helping to directly support the pollinator population.
