365 Days of Fun and Chillaxation – Blog 264 – Save the Honey Bee

Submitted by on January 15, 2011 – 9:30 pm 2 Comments

I started my life amongst the honey bees.  My father was an apiarist (amongst other things) and he initiated a way cool honey get-up, which is still running today, called Heaphy Honey.

He loved the bees and his bee-ish life, and would tend to the hives all over Golden Bay.  I was lugged around in a big white truck as a baby watching my father tend to the hives.  So it’s natural to me that these days I get a little passionate about honey bees and their survival as a species, and then there’s the fact that our whole eco-system depends on them …  yes … there is that little detail …

So here’s a petition for you to sign if you love bees. I’ve signed it, you take a look:

“Quietly, globally, billions of bees are dying, threatening our crops and food. But a global ban of one group of pesticides could save bees from extinction.

Four European countries have begun banning these poisons, and some bee populations are recovering. But chemical companies are lobbying hard to keep all killer pesticides on the market. A global outcry now for a ban in the US and EU, where debate is raging, could provoke a total ban and a ripple effect around the world.

Let’s build a giant global buzz calling for these dangerous chemicals to be outlawed in the US and EU until and unless they are proved to be safe. Sign the petition to save bees and our crops and send this to everyone”

Sign the petition now – it takes two minutes.

    My wife and I love Heaphy Honey, but we cannot find it in Richmond or Nelson any more. Is it still available? We get through about 2kg per month so wnat to buy loads. The other honeys are fine, but Heaphy is the best. We’ll keep looking.

    Cheers Simon

    Hi there Simon,
    I can still buy their honey from the Takaka supermarket. I think it would pay to track them down via the white or yellow pages. I just had a quick google search, couldn’t find a website for them. But they’re definitely still producing yummy honey! I’ve got some in my cupboard!
