Sustainability Fair

Friday I had the privilege of presenting my "girls" (the honeybees) at a Sustainability Fair at Messiah College. In the middle of a completely gray, rainy day, the sun came out for 3 hours and we were able to be out of doors for the fair. There were displays about water conservation, solar energy and sustainable farming. A small market was set up selling herbs, flowers, and pies baked with local fruit. Honeybees are always a curiosity for young and old alike!

That really IS fascinating. Sustainability is such a hot topic recently , so a fair is the best way to get the word out and actually show people. Here's hoping you inspired more people to live "local"and support their communities and well as enrich their own lives. ;)

We have a Sustainability fair to go to soon, and we are always drawn to the bee tent. One day we will have bees, we say it every year :)
