  1. Promotion and advancement of beekeeping.
  2. Education the public to honey bees and beekeeping.
  3. Make the public aware of environmental concerns affecting honey bees.

I did not know about National Honey Bee Day David. Bees are so important and there should be no sting in celebrating a day for ail the cross pollinating they do and all the honey the give us.

I had no idea there was a national honey bee day.  I love bees and honey so long as they do not head my way. Once was stung and had a horrible reaction so I will appreciate bees from afar.

David - thanks for the information on honey bees.  There is nothing like pure honey.  I didn't realize that here was a national day.  I love buying the pure honey at the farm stands.

David, there are a lot of beekeepers in this area.  We had a very large bee hive, like the size of a basketball, in one of the bushes on the side of the house... Glad to see winter come and the bees  leave.

Hi David.  The honey bee has been in trouble the last several years.  I heard 30% of the population is gone.  Not good for us.

I'm always on the lookout for some dark buckwheat honey.  So many beneficial aspects to adding a bit of honey to our diets.  Nature's nerve tonic!
