3Bee srl sviluppa tecnologie all'avanguardia nel campo del monitoraggio, prevenzione e cura dell'alveare. Sono un'azienda (srl) e una start up agri-tech che sviluppa sistemi intelligenti di monitoraggio e diagnostica per la salute delle api. Attraverso le loro esclusive tecnologie gli apicoltori possono monitorare costantemente e in modo completo i propri alveari al fine di ottimizzare la produzione, risparmiare tempo e curare le proprie api prevenendone problemi e malattie. In 2 anni hanno sviluppato un network di 10.000 apicoltori in tutta Italia che ci aiutano, seguono e usano la loro tecnologia. Grazie a questo network hanno creato il programma di ricerca, sviluppo ed economia circolare "Adotta un alveare". 3Bee ha anche rivoluzionato l’antichissima e preziosissima arte dell’apicoltura, incentivandone la crescita e la riscoperta grazie all’applicazione di tecnologie innovative come l’IoT, l’intelligenza artificiale e il machine-learning. In più, hanno fornito un modo nuovo di lavorare agli apicoltori e, grazie alla piattaforma interattiva, offrono ai privati e aziende un modo facile e personalizzato per intraprendere iniziative green. Dal 2018, anno di nascita della piattaforma per le adozioni, sono stati adottati oltre 500 alveari. In seguito al successo del progetto e alle crescenti richieste, hanno deciso di adattarlo e renderlo disponibile a tutte le aziende attente alle tematiche green di sostenibilità ambientale. La modalità di partecipazione consiste in scegliere un apicoltore, adottare un alveare e sfruttare della tua miele preferita. Per questa iniziativa 3Bee ha selezionato i migliori apicoltori italiani, fornendo loro una nuova tecnologia e offrendo loro il servizio di monitoraggio che unisce la tradizione all'innovazione. Questo permette che ogni utente possa di scegliere la biodiversità che vuoi creare e il quantitativo di miele che potrà gustare a fine stagione. Il servizio prevede anche l'invio del miele! Finalmente, puoi monitorare da remoto dal tuo profilo la crescita del tuo alveare grazie ai sensori 3Bee. Peso, umidità, temperatura e suoni. L'apicoltore farà il resto. “Ogni ape salvata, ogni fiore impollinato, ogni apicoltore sostenuto, racconta una storia emozionante fatta di natura, lavoro, sacrificio e amore per il pianeta.” 3Bee

Born and raised in Cape Town, South Africa, I am a 22 year old who could be described as ambitious, hardworking, and a perfectionist. I enjoy being challenged with new tasks, as I believe discomfort allows one to grow and learn. I enjoy teamwork, but I am also capable of working on my own. I believe that communication is an important aspect of any relationship, especially professional ones, as it doesn’t leave any room for errors or misunderstandings. Therefore, I pride myself on being a skilled communicator. I am organised, goal-driven, and I find it very hard to set a task down once I have started. I may not have the most extroverted personality, but I do enjoy socialising with others in any setting. I recently graduated with a BA in English and Communication Science. While completing my degree, I worked as an editorial intern at Highbury Media, where I gained first hand experience in editing, publishing, and social media management. I was also able to sharpen my writing skills, which came in handy as I went on to work as a freelance writer for ClubX Magazine for over a year. Even though I do not have years of experience behind me, I am, however, eager to learn. And a fresh mind is always a benefit. When it comes to my free time, I enjoy reading, writing, and painting. I am also currently learning Italian and intend on tackling many other foreign languages.

I am a God fearing individual, and I’m also a father to two beautiful kids, a boy and a girl. I worked for Tekkie Town as a Sales Assistant and I was chosen as the best Sales person for the entire Mpumalanga province. I also worked for the Department of agriculture as a Data capture. I have a passion for sports, football is one of my favourites and one day I wish I can own a soccer team. While I was in high school, I always wanted to be a lawyer but due to financial constraints I could not become one. My interest in the justice system came when I realised that the late former president Mr Nelson Mandela was also a lawyer representing his people. I wish one day I could give back to my community and its people because my community gave us the likes of the late Steve Bantu Biko, one of the BCM Members who fought for the people of South Africa. My community is one of the underdeveloped communities of this country, but I know that one day all of this will change because I know that with education anything is possible. When a child is educated communities will change for the better and if one community changes, then our country will change for the better as well and poverty will be no more. Education topped with one’s perseverance is the key to a bright future for all. With this pandemic people have lost their jobs and in some households you find that no one is working and people resort to drugs and alcohol, some get depressed to a point of taking their own lives. If we can start developing jobs for people, our continent would become a better place for us all. Being part of an initiative that supports the empowerment of those less privileged is one of my greatest wishes. I will be glad if all my wishes do come through because nothing is as important as education and hard work, and an educated country means a better world for us all.

Mi chiamo Nazario e sono un apicoltore che vive un territorio bellissimo, il Molise, una piccola regione dell’Italia centrale. Ho un laboratorio a Montagano in provincia di Campobasso e arnie dislocate in diverse aree collinari e montane del territorio molisano, dove nei mesi da aprile e fino ad agosto sposto le arnie con le famiglie di api sulle diverse fioriture per avere mieli uniflora pregiati in purezza e millefiori di eccellente qualità La mia è un’apicoltura integrata e sostenibile, un modello che ho appreso dalle mie api. Dalla loro organizzazione, dal loro lavoro e del loro capitale naturale: il miele, che loro producono e che rappresenta il risultato di un rapporto articolato e complesso tra le api stesse ed il loro ambiente. Ho fatto una scelta impegnativa, che va oltre l’avere un semplice bollino biologico. Personalmente ho sentito l’esigenza di creare una azienda apistica ad “economia circolare”. Dare vita ad un sistema di economia circolare dove il controllo sulla filiera del miele e degli altri prodotti apistici appartiene al produttore e al consumatore. Voglio portare con mano chi consuma il mio miele sui campi dove porto le api, di come producono il miele e, successivamente, come io lo estraggo in laboratorio. Dietro ogni ape c’è un fiore impollinato, c’è un apicoltore che utilizza tutte le tecniche per la conservazione dell’ambiente e per tutelare il benessere stesso delle api e della salvaguardia dell’apis mellifere ligustica, l’ape italiana. Il mio lavoro racconta una storia emozionante fatta di natura, lavoro, sacrificio e amore per questi piccoli ma importantissimi insetti. Le api rappresentano uno degli anelli più importanti per un ecosistema sano. Le mie api non producono solo miele. Produco emozioni, se sappiamo ancora emozionarci con un cucchiaio di miele naturale. Compra il mio miele e sostieni un piccolo apicoltore e le sue api che tutelano l’ambiente e la biodiversità. Non mi interessa avere il bollino del miele biologico. La mia Azienda ha fatto scelte ancora più importanti ed impegnative, creare un’Azienda apistica ad “economia circolare”. Creare un processo produttivo sostenibile e rispettoso dell’ambiente, della biodiversità e delle api lungo tutta la catena del valore dell’allevamento apistico. Le api rappresentano uno degli anelli più importanti per un ecosistema sano. My name is Nazario, I am a beekeeper, I live in central Italy a small and beautiful region called Molise. I have a laboratory in Montagano in the province of Campobasso and I have beehives based in different hilly and mountainous parts of the Molise area, between April and August I move the beehives to different blooms to create pure, excellent quality single and assorted mixed flowered honey. Through working with and learning from bees, beekeeping for me has developed into an integrated and sustainable role model. Honey produced by bees through their organisation and work is as a result of their complex and articulated relationships with their environment. Making a demanding choice, going further than having an organic honey seal of approval, I personally felt the need to create a “circular economy”. Initiating a circular economy where control over honey and other bee products belong to the producer and the consumer. I would like to take those who consume my honey on a journey to the fields where I take the bees showing them how the honey is produced and subsequently, how it is extracted in the laboratory. Behind each bee there is a pollinated flower, there is a beekeeper who uses all the techniques for preserving the environment whilst protecting the well-being of bees and safeguarding the (Ligustica ) Italian honey bee. My work is an emotional story, of nature, work, obligation and love for these little but most important insects. Bees represent one of the most significant aspects for a healthy biodiversity. My bees do not only produce honey, they produce an emotion, if we can still become emotional about a spoonful of natural honey. Buy my honey Support the dedication of a small passionate beekeeper and his bees who in turn protect the environment and biodiversity. Although there is a honey seal of approval, my company has made an even more Important and demanding choice, by creating a beehive company of a circular economy. Creating a productive and sustainable process that is respectful of the environment, of biodiversity and of bees along the whole production line, treasuring the breeding of beekeeping.

Backyard Beekeeping 101: The #1 Source For Apiculture Enthusiasts. The bees are back! Well, maybe not yet, but we can hope, can’t we? For years now the message has been constant, the bees need our help. The only problem is sometimes we can do more harm than good when we act without the right information. A lot of new beekeepers are doing exactly that. So how can aspiring beekeepers make sure that they are helping their bees? Arriving at Backyardbeekeeping101.com is a great first step. Annie, lifelong nature lover, beekeeper, and educator. Her goal for this site is to provide you with easy to read condensed information about bees and beekeeping. The two are separate entities because the bees can exist without beekeepers. Annie doesn’t just want to give you a how-to manual on apiculture. Instead, she wants you to draw on the years of experience that I have as a professional beekeeper and help you understand why you do what you do. Why is that important? Well, failure to understand why, may have caused the predicament that bees are going through right now. Had we taken the time to observe the diverse needs of the bees, perhaps the state of California wouldn’t need to import bees from other states when the almond trees are in bloom. Had we taken the time to understand the cycle of the varroa mite, perhaps we wouldn’t have created these pesticide resistant vectors. Couldn’t we have taken a little more time understanding the effect pesticides have on friendly insects? CCD wouldn’t automatically conjure up images of dead colonies. Instead, it would still stand for Census County Division or any one of over 100 different meanings of that same acronym. That said, it’s not all doom and gloom guys. Beekeeping isn’t just a feel-good activity. The products from the hive are extremely beneficial, some even help to pay the bills. It’s also known to be a great stress reliever because it helps you commune with nature. There’s so much for the beginner and a few nuggets for the experienced as well. Annie's goal is to answer your questions and keep you updated when new questions arise. I do have to warn you, bees can create an obsession in you. It’s almost an addiction once you get started. Everything you look at falls under two categories: Bee friendly or bee enemy. I think it’s a very healthy addiction and I hope it spreads. This isn’t just for beekeepers, it’s for bee enthusiasts. The world needs more bee friends than it does beekeepers. Bees exist in the wild and we have the same responsibility to them as we do to our whales and polar ice-caps. Every little bit helps. Bees have so many secrets that studying them is like reading a murder mystery. Even when disaster strikes, you’re transfixed and can’t help but turn the page and learn more.

Bee Better Certified™ works to give bees a healthy place to live. Bee Better Certified™ partners with farmers and food companies to conserve bees and other pollinators in agricultural lands. Our work advances more resilient pollinator populations and sustainable crop production. The Bee Better Certified seal identifies and celebrates farmers and businesses that adopt farm management practices that support pollinators, and gives consumers confidence that their purchasing decisions benefit pollinators and the farmers working to protect them. The Xerces Society and Oregon Tilth joined forces to create and implement the Bee Better certification program. The Xerces Society provided the technical expertise and scientific foundation necessary to identify key factors that farmers can alter to benefit pollinators. With over 40 years of certification experience consulted on the development and implementation of the Bee Better Certified Standards, which allow farmers to get certified with ease. Without bees we wouldn’t have the abundance of apples, pumpkins, strawberries, blueberries, or almonds that we enjoy. Of the foods and beverages that we consume daily, over 30% rely on or benefit from a pollinator.1 Pollinators even help milk production: the alfalfa and clover cows graze is replenished by seed pollinated by bees. Pollinator populations rebound when they are provided with habitat13–16 and protected from other threats. To promote pollinators on farms, The Xerces Society developed a comprehensive set of Production Standards guided by the most recent science and rooted in over a decade of on-farm trials. Bee Better Certified farmers create flower-rich habitat, provide nesting locations, and create a safer environment for pollinators by protecting them from pesticide exposure and the spread of disease from commercially managed bumble bees. By buying Bee Better Certified products, you can help transform our farmland into a landscape that nourishes pollinator populations, providing vibrant habitats that help pollinators thrive while making agriculture more resilient.

The Magazine of American Beekeeping, is designed for Beginning, Sideline and Commercial Beekeepers who want the latest information on keeping bees. A small division of Root Candles, Bee Culture Magazine has been published by this company for nearly 140 years as a part of the now retired beekeeping supply business the company was once in. Now, they manufacture candles... and publish our magazine. Editor of Bee Culture magazine, Jerry Hayes, started out in life as a High School teacher. He hated it. He went into another business where he worked with a beekeeper. Back many years ago, Jerry knew about Honey Bees, but nobody actually knew a ‘Beekeeper’, did they? Jerry asked him questions, picked his brain, became more interested and fascinated and started reading everything he could get his hands on about Honey Bees. He turned into the consummate backyard beekeeper. He did all the fun and crazy things backyard beekeepers do and built and experimented with. He wondered if he could get into the Beekeeping world and support a young family. So, with the support of his family, he went back to school under the tutelage of Dr. Jim Tew, at The Ohio State University. “Top 10 Best thing I ever did,” Jerry said. Years later he looks back on his opportunities as a Research Technician at the USDA/ARS Baton Rouge Bee Lab, Dadant and Sons Regional Mgr., Dadant And Sons New Product Dev., and AR Mgr., Chief of the Apiary Section for the Florida Dept. of Agriculture and Consumer Services, Monsanto Honey Bee Lead, VP. of Vita Bee health North America and now Editor of Bee Culture magazine with awe and amazement.

The Bee Health Collective is a collaboration of stakeholder organizations to gather and share current, credible information about honey bee health. Founded by Project Apis m. and the National Honey Board in 2019, the Bee Health Collective is a repository of information about bee health in the USA. The mission of this project is to gather and provide a ‘one-stop shop’ resource of accessible, credible information about honey bee health, honey bee research, the bee-keeping industry, and how these relate to important things like agriculture, resource management and food. Humans rely on honey bees for the production of many crops. Along with providing important pollination services, honey bees produce about 150 million pounds of honey in the USA each year along with other hive products like beeswax, propolis, royal jelly and pollen. Humans have been keeping bees for thousands of years. Over time, methods have evolved and even today beekeeping practices differ around the world. In the United States, it is important to understand that most beekeepers are backyard beekeepers, each having only a few colonies for personal use. Most colonies in the U.S. belong to a much smaller number of commercial beekeepers. Unfortunately, all bees are facing serious health threats. This is driving high annual honey bee colony losses, making it increasingly difficult for beekeepers to provide pollination for crops and run sustainable businesses. In 2006, Colony Collapse Disorder devastated many beekeepers and honey bee colonies across the US. Colony Collapse Disorder is a syndrome characterized by some very specific symptoms: the majority of worker bees in a hive disappear and leave behind a laying queen, plenty of food and a few nurse bees to care for the remaining immature bees and the queen. It's as if a booming metropolis suddenly emptied its working population. As a result, the hive dies. Scientists still don’t know for sure what causes Colony Collapse Disorder, and it is infrequently seen today. Even though CCD is not at the forefront of honey bee health concerns today, we continue to see high annual losses related to this. There are many organizations dedicated to helping honey bees and pollinators. From research to habitat to education and policy - however you want to help, there is an organization that can utilize your donation. Project Apis m. is a founder of the Bee Health Collective and supports honey bee research and habitat projects.

Peter Kočalka is a professional bee-keeper. However, he is not just an ordinary commercial bee-keeper, he is interested in organic bee-keeping and always aims to understand their behaviour. Not only do thousands of people already support his approach, but he has developed procedures for bee care and monitoring, which not only helps beekeepers, but also serves to collect scientific data. Bee Hive Weight Monitoring are beekeepers with a large Apiary in Slovak Republic. They are professional beekeepers not just commercial beekeepers. They are interested in organic bee-keeping, and they always seek to understand Bee behaviour. Bees have existed on our planet for over 150 million years. Human intervention into the ecosystem has caused the European honey bees to no longer be able to survive on their own. They have become endangered species. They would go extinct without the care of beekeepers and that, would have a catastrophic impact on the entire ecosystem. Bee Hive Weight Managements vision is to create a system of ecological bee-keeping without the use of any chemicals. In a way which would be sustainable. Currently, they look after hundreds of honey bee colonies. Each one is being monitored with their latest technology. The technology they use is specifically designed to help the beekeepers. The bee-keeper gains a complete overview of the health and productivity of his hives. Thanks to this technology, interventions, which would be unnecessary, aren’t needed. It is 100% biological, 100% residue-free, harmless for the bees, easy to use, usable all year around even during honey flow and gives you maximum benefits. The technology is designed to be affordable for anyone. No setup, no configuration needed. In 2016, they launched some simple and environmentally friendly methods of bee care. Their project is supported by tens of thousands of people who are helping thousands of bee colonies. It doesn't matter what climate you have the bees in, or how good the year is, or what your hives and equipment are. It doesn't even matter what line of bees you have. Before you give up and start arguing that it's meant to be, that it’s the fault of the climate change, try one more experiment, to convince yourself about the opposite. There is always HOPE. A lot of honeybee colonies are lost because bee-keeper's have limited information. They have an Apiary with 300 colonies of bees and when they started monitoring it changed everything. What they want is to provide this system to all beekeepers as cheap as possible. To do that, they need mass production to lower costs. Bee Hive Weight Management provides a simple and proven solution for bee-keepers to eliminate even the most serious problems with their bees! [/box]

Most people have no idea how amazing and magnificent bees are, or how important bees are to our survival on this planet. Most of us lack the knowledge and guidance about how to coexist with bees, and the simple things we can all do to share our environment safely with these darling little creatures. Bee Mission focuses on outreach and education by investing in powerful and informative content, paid traffic which spreads awareness and converts new Bee Missionaries every day, and supporting front line organizations through outreach and by providing financial support to those that actively affect global bee populations in a meaningful way. They are completely self-funded. Your support, whether by sharing an informative blog post or through a purchase, allows them to continue doing what they do. Bee Mission learns something new about bees daily, and want to share with the world how brilliant, intelligent and amazing bees truly are. A lot of people know bees are pollinators, but few people know their quirks, sophisticated social structures, or how gifted they are in mathematical and geometric calculations. Bees face real threats all over the world, many of which are not fully understood or explained. This lack of understanding slows progress and solutions. The more people relate to and understand bees, the more important the bee-cause becomes. They believe they can support these amazing creatures by raising awareness and helping endear them more to the masses. Food shortages have long been predicted if we continue to lose colonies of our hardworking little pollinator friends. Bee Mission is 100% self-funded, and they do not accept donations. Bee Mission has been built around a philosophy of serving bees through the creation of engaging information, building a following of fellow Bee Missionaries, and supporting frontline organizations they see as making a difference. All of their content is created in-house, through thorough research, and deployed free of cost through their blog, with materials published on and available for free on Apple Books and Amazon (except where Amazon requires a minimum price), social media, and through their email list. In 2019 Bee Mission reached over 61,000,000 people. Through your support, they have raised awareness about how special and brilliant bees are, and they would like to have an even greater impact in the future. The hive thrives because bees work together. When you make a purchase from their store, or write in to them with amazing bee stories, or even simply share their content, we are all working together to positively impact global bee populations. They have a lot of goals to bring to fruition, these include partnering with select organizations with whom they can create unique products that directly benefit the organization on a per-sale basis, as well as giving these organizations a voice to speak directly with their 145,000+ followers. They are developing free resources specifically for kids. The younger generation needs to understand bees, understand that they are not to be feared, and they are creating more free content that should engage the younger generations, leaving them with fun experiences and a new-found appreciation for bees. At Bee Mission, one of the biggest parts of their mission is to provide valuable educational information to the general public in an effort to help raise awareness for these incredible creatures & their importance to this planet.

AI and bees BeeHero has developed a monitoring system to help maintain bee colony health; another start-up, BEEsharing, runs a pollination service, matching up bee-keepers and farmers. Such innovative ventures are needed in the face of mass bee death worldwide. Generations Of Bee-keeping and Innovation at Work BeeHero was founded by a team of veteran bee-keepers, serial entrepreneurs, renowned biologists, and data scientists to ensure that everyone wins: farmers, bee-keepers, and nature. 70% of crops worldwide rely on bees, whose increasing mortality rate, coupled with colony collapse disorder, puts financial strain on farmers and bee-keepers. This makes it harder to feed an exponentially growing global population. They built their cutting-edge platform and low-cost sensors to provide frictionless setup and operation for bee-keepers and achieving their goal: increasing crop yield and quality while enhancing pollinator health. BeeHero maximizes crop yields through precision pollination, combining sophisticated machine learning algorithms with low-cost sensors to stimulate maximum output potential during peak pollination cycles. Headquartered in California with research and development in Israel, their team of commercial bee-keepers and food growers, engineers and entrepreneurs, and industry-renowned scientists work around the globe and around the clock to maximize every pollination cycle.

Bees for Development helps some of the world’s poorest people become self-sufficient through bee-keeping. All their work is based on the understanding of the inter-linked and sustaining relationship between bees and flowering plants. Plants provide bees with a bountiful supply of free nectar in exchange for the pollination services that ultimately underpin the production of fruits, nuts and oilseeds on which humans and wildlife depend for food. When they started work in 1993, bee-keeping was considered a marginal activity, and they struggled to get our point across. They knew the importance of bees in helping to make marginal livelihoods more resilient and successful. Yet not everyone shared their vision! All of their work is aimed at promoting bee-keeping to change people’s lives for the better while supporting ecosystem integrity. Beekeeping is not just one of their areas of expertise – it is what they all do, all day, every day. Most of them are beekeepers, they talk to beekeepers, they implement bee-keeping projects; they read the research, follow global developments and question, puzzle and think about what really works, for whom and why. A unique feature of Bees for Development is the way they stick to the principles of natural bee-keeping. They recognise that for poor people, nature is wealth. In bee-keeping this means using the natural behaviour and immune responses of bees to keep them healthy. Above all, they recognise that beekeepers in difficult environments need to be empowered with access to skills, knowledge, information and connections. Bees for Development started life as an organisation delivering information, and this aspect of their work remains at our core. Their full range of information services can be accessed through their Resource Centre. There you can find all the past issues of Bees for Development Journal and how to subscribe to future editions – free of charge to beekeepers in poor nations, and you can search their online library, access their manuals, guides and fact sheets. Users’ enquiries will be answered by their team of specialists. Their emphasis on building local capacity permeates every aspect of their work. They always work with local partner organisations and this partnership working is effective, lasting and impactful. Their work is based upon the interdependent and sustaining relationships between bees, and flowering plants and people – through the craft of bee-keeping. Plants provide bees with bountiful nectar in exchange for their pollination service, which enables the production of fruits and seeds on which humans and wildlife depend for food. The supply of nectar – transformed into honey comb – is often so plentiful that a surplus can be harvested and sold as honey and beeswax without harming this essential system. Bees for Development recognises that the exploitation of this bee-plant relationship – otherwise known as bee-keeping – can be done in a way that is wholly self-sustaining and beneficial. In pursuit of the Sustainable Development Agenda, humans face huge challenges to reduce the negative trade-offs between meeting people’s needs and conserving ecosystems. Beekeeping is an activity that delivers only positive synergies, yielding income for beekeepers and pollination services for life on land. Beekeepers know that their bees need plants to thrive, and hence are champions of floral diversity and conservation. In short, bee-keeping supports people and nature!

Amanda, bee conservationist and enthusiast has been studying bees since 2008, an interest fostered informally in childhood. She began building Buzz about Bees in August 2010. Deciding to create it because of her concern about bees, and because she believed that people can make a difference and help reverse threats and declines by planting lots of flowers in their gardens. She also loved sharing her enthusiasm for bees, and wanted to inspire others. She began raising awareness of the plight of bees in 2008, and was extremely active on Twitter from 2009, sharing links to information and organizing letter writing campaigns. Back then, there was little awareness of the problems facing bees, and about issues such as habitat loss and the impact of insecticides. There was also very little information available on-line at that time. She was one of a very small group of trail-blazing independent campaigners. The group included a few beekeepers across the world (Phil Chandler, Tom Theobald, Graham White), a retired Consultant Anaesthetist and a Dutch toxicologist. A number of supporters assisted in helping to build momentum, and almost all of them were beekeepers. It is hard to imagine now, but a number of us had to withstand significant on-line abuse, and a general disregard from decision makers. It took time to generate the momentum behind the campaign. At last, major charities came on board from 2012 onwards after the EFSA inquiry into the regulatory position and evidence around the threat of neonicotinoid insecticides to bees, and they have since helped to spread the message. Amanda writes a lot about tips to help bees, gardening for bees, and enjoy raising awareness of some less well-known solitary species. She also uses her website to help change the perception of insects such as wasps, which are mostly very valuable helpers in the garden. She particularly offers advice concerning nests, and other general queries about how people can help pollinators. Aside from doing what she could by including flowers for bees in her garden, she found that one of the most effective ways in which a difference has been created is via written letters (usually to politicians) – Many initiated by her website using social media. She also writes short, informal features for local magazines, and along with some of her independent campaigning colleagues, fed a number of important stories and items of research with the mainstream newspapers. Some of which was the result of time-consuming, background investigation work. Amanda began working with children too, every once in a while, planting pots of wild flowers and making simple bee houses, and giving talks locally to increase education and awareness around bees. Her site contains information about bumblebees, honey bees and solitary bees specifically, including information about life cycles, gardening for bees, conservation issues, as well as various articles and snippets of general 'bee information' which will help to answer many questions.

Born and bred in beautiful Cape Town, mom to a long-awaited, witty, (inherited from me of course!), amazing, lively little 5-year-old girl, 2 dogs and 2 cats, 'my rescue children'. Married to Tomy, a senior digital content producer hailing from Tennenbronn, Germany. He is as introvert as I am extrovert – the scale balances beautifully. In my spare time (which is limited!) I sketch, paint, and try my hand at baking, while completing a mini-thesis in psychology. University after high school was not an option. I am also a seasoned HR professional, with a passion for people and process, building and maintaining great relationships form the foundation of both who I am, and what I do. And it’s a solid foundation. Hailing from the Pharmaceutical industry, I entered the world of investments about 14 years ago, where after joining as Office Manager, I moved into HR and have been in the HR sphere since. My journey has taken me on many a bumpy road, however, being a glass-half-full type, seasoned by an interesting childhood, and a solid determination to rise above, I march smilingly on. I have a passion for order, automation and software which could aid in optimization, easing transitions and processes. I am resilient with great sense of humour, always welcoming a challenge. I have a firm belief that building and nurturing relationships are paramount to success. I love meeting people and building relationships come naturally to me. I believe it’s the level of connection that counts. I am passionate about my work, I love what I do, and I do it well. I believe that doing what you love is a privilege. Yet, I still long for something more philanthropic in life. To give back, be it ever so small. Being an eternal optimist and peppered with life’s-experiences, I have been shaped into the person I am today. Pragmatic, passionate, and humble. An enormous amount of grit coupled a with good dose of grace! I am not done growing yet, not by a long shot, there are too many interesting, inspiring people to meet along the way, and there is always something to learn and something to contribute in life. It’s the journey that counts and I enjoy every step.
