My name is Madeline Tubbs. I created this website as an extension of my Girl Scouts Gold Award "Let's Bee Friendly." Honey bees and pollinators in general are being threatened from many different areas. As a result, our environment and our food supply are in danger. If we do not take steps now to address gaps in understanding about these amazing creatures, nutritious fruits and vegetables will be scarce and very costly, plants that rely upon pollination to reproduce will die off permanently changing our landscape and our everyday lies will be altered.
Through documenting my experience in raising my own backyard honey beehive here, speaking engagements throughout my community and educating gardeners about bee-friendly pest management, we can all become bee-friendly people!
It was the bumble bee and the butterfly who survived,
not the dinosaur.
