#and I just don’t feel entitled to someone else’s life’s work.
That comment exactly!! It’s not mine and I can survive without it, so I will.
This is why honey is not vegan.
However, being vegan, or… eating food at all.. requires the work of bees, so as a responsible vegan you’re obligated to do two things: keep your food organic, don’t pay for bees to be exposed to pesticide made to kill them, often slowly or effecting the whole hive, and two, donate to local organic wildflower bee farms without buying, it provides the only type of “farm” that is instead untouched prairie and helps all wildlife, giving them money means more acres for the bees, and giving money without purchasing means they get it without work, both the bees and the farmers. Also, try to find a farm that let’s them hibernate as well, the Ames family farm in Minnesota is all of these things, and more, you can find one near you to help fund at Localharvest.com. You use them, we all do, like it or not, so help them stay healthy.
I really like your information about the organic wildflower bee farms! However, please try and reverse the classist point of view that vegans are obligated to eat organic. Organic produce is more expensive than conventional, and not all vegans have the luxury of eating organic - so please do not shame them for that!! Thank you :) ♥
this makes me excited about what paul stamets is working on….a cure for colony collapse!
I was chatting to a chap at our local nursery where they specialise in apple trees. He showed me a few trees that had been double grafted:
Fruit wood grafted on top
Disease resistant material between, forming a six inch section of stem
root stock beneath
The theory was that by grafting…
