🐝Bee Connected Challenge🐝 

We have a challenge for you! Can you see the bee in this image? 

We are asking the community to explore nature and take a photo of some bees! This could be your in own garden or somewhere on your daily walk (within 5km of your home). Spend some time listening for the lovely hum of busy bees, and when you spot one, take a photo and send it to us! There is a Face Book EVENT  on our facebook page where you can upload your Beeautiful images! Take some time with this, breathe in the fresh air, be present in the moment, take in the beauty of nature and show gratitude. There are many benefits for spending time outside in nature.

Do you want to do more to support the bees in your area? Bee Day Australia have a great initiative currently running called '#PlantThreeForTheBees'. They are delivering seedlings of 3 popular flowers that bees love. You then plant these seeds in your garden or a pot, and watch your plants grow and your bees flourish. This is a fabulous and simple way to support the bees in our community! Click here to get more information and to order you bee-friendly seeds.
