SAVE THE BEES!

 

 

Honey bees contribute over $14 billion to the value of U.S. crop production. Many of the country’s crops would not exist without the honey bee at bloom time.

Why are the bees dissapearing:

Global warming

Pesticide use on farms

Habitat loss

Proceeds from the Bee a Hero shirt go to buying pesticide free native plants to plant in Georgia for bees to pollinate. We will plant appropriate flowers/plants for each season.


Georgia's native plants for pollinators:

Silene stellata (Starry Campion)
    
Centrosema virginianum (Spurred Butterfly Pea)
    
Lilium michauxii (Carolina lily)
    
Hypoxis hirsuta (Yellow Star Grass)

 

So thrilled to be in the Atlanta Journal Constitution! I'm so excited for everyone to read my newest children's book Lucy and Sammy Save the Environment and to read more about some of my upcoming projects with my non-profit organization Maya's Ideas 4 The Planet.

Big Thanks to the lovely Sheila Poole and the AJC!
