So much of what is sweet, most nurturing on our planet, and in our lives is brought to us via the work of the most industrious of pollinators – Apis Melifera. She who builds cities of plant sex inside the holy places of trees and coats them with the most potent of medicines – Propolis.
She who spends her brief life in service to fertilities & fecundities which she will never live to see!
Come, let our mouths, hearts, and lives be fed and inspired by the sweet work and stories of these grand yet small creatures whose every harvest is an act of reciprocity in service to the diversity & vitality of life.
