We are all buzzing on Sasserfrass Hill

Happy Spring Everyone.!!!! We are having a Buzzzzy time on Sasserfrass Hill.

I am learning so much about my bees everyday. I have been speaking to Garden Clubs in the area. Encouraging everyone to stop using so many chemicals in the garden.

We all know the pollinators are in trouble. But, Why you ask???? Scientist blame one group of agricultural toxin-neonicotinoid pesticides as a major contributor to their rapid demise, and bee populations have recovered in four European countries that have banned these products.

Bayer still sells this deadly poison here in the United States. One of our goals on Sasserfrass Hill is to enlighten everyone and get this poison banned in the United States of America.We must convince our government not to heed the powerful chemical lobby, but to defend the bees and the country's food supply by calling for a national ban NOW!!!!! ... no time to waist.

Our best chance to save bees now is to push our government to join the ban, their action is critical and will have a ripple effect on the rest of the word.

This is not just about saving the bees , this is about survival. Silently, billion of bees are dying off and our entire food chain is in danger. Bees don't just make honey; they are a giant, humble workforce, pollinating 90% of the plants we grow.

Please join me, sign the emergency petition now, and send it on to everyone you know ...we must get the poison banned in our country.

Bee Safe... (did I mention the poison is put on your corn seed),
