Forage Bees are Coming!
This year Forage is working with Apiaries and Bees for Communities to support 2 new bee hives. Eliese Watson , ABC Founder, has been educating and promoting beekeeping in the city for years and we’ve always
wanted to work with her team. Over the coming months we will be telling you more all about it and later in the summer there will be an opportunity to visit the hives. If all goes well, we’ll have some honey to harvest
in the fall. Bees are such an incredibly important part of the food we eat and our environment and we look forward to sharing our experience with you!
Help Stop GM Alfalfa
From the Organic Alberta Website: GM alfalfa is a serious threat to organic farming. Organic farmers rely on alfalfa – organic dairy and livestock farmers in particular. Once planted bees will cross-pollinate GM Alfalfa and regular alfalfa, causing contamination. Organic rules do not allow for GM crops or animal feed, and the result will be loss of organic certification, loss of livelihood of many organic farmers and a significant reduction in organic products available to consumers. GM alfalfa may be registered as early as this spring.
You can find out more and what can be done to try and stop this from happening on the Organic Alberta website here.
