We want to thank everyone that contributed to our 2015 Indiegogo campaign. It was a learning experience and we greatly appreciate what we received. Your support, financial and moral will go a long way to helping us with our mission. For those that are not familiar with our new project, please see our promotional video linked HERE.
Welcome to Peace Bees, the web home of The Bee Girl, Alex Lesniak who is also the 2007 Indiana Young Beekeeper of the Year and the 2011 Indiana Honey Princess. Peace Bees served as the managing partner for the 2014-2015 USDA SARE Grant FNC14-957. Our goal is to the supply the best product possible while bringing honey bees and people together in peace. Through our educational programs and Second Chance programs we teach sustainable beekeeping methods and environmental stewardship. The peaceful honey bee has so much to offer that we are expanding to bring their calming, therapeutic, nature to the community and those facing workplace challenges like PTSD or inadequate job and social skills. We believe that everybody deserves a second chance.
Most people do not realize that the honey bee is a peaceful creature. All they want to do is collect nectar and pollen and will only sting if provoked.
One third, or more, of our food supply depends on the honey bee. These wonderful creatures are vital to a healthy and diverse food supply. So think twice about swatting at the errant bee that flies your way, and show a little love for the peaceful honey bee.
