"Imagine a world without sweet tasting fruits ...
Did you know ... honey bees are responsible for pollinating 1/3 of all the foods we eat.
FFLPFs goal is straightforward: to collectively plant over a million plants and trees for a healthier planet and all who live there. In a world where land is overused, the foundation's holistic approach heals the environment by helping to clean the air, improve the soil, prevent erosion, create animal habitats, maintain valuable water and other resources, and by providing the healthiest most nutritious foods.
Bees are major contributors to the global environment. They provide for edible plants and many other important things. We can't live without them.
Did you know ... Colony Collapse Disorder (CCD). CCD is a mysterious disorder causing the disappearance of millions of honeybees that if left unsolved, could affect the availability of the food we eat.
Because organic farms grow fruits and vegetables without pesticides, they are naturally bee-friendly places that actually need bees to grow their crops. Support these growers who are crucial to fighting Colony Collapse Disorder by using the links below to locate your local organic farmers and picking up some of their produce. This simple step can help prevent bees from disappearing in your area.
Our goal is to help create a world where people have the information and tools they need to make the highest ethical choices and do the best for themselves, their families and the environment. That's no short order, but it is attainable. We've started with a strong and on-going commitment to a set of values and activities that support the well-being of people and our planet. We call it The Greater Good.
Food For Life Planting Foundation created this page because honey bee populations are disappearing at an alarming rate, and we want to keep these tiny creatures alive.
Food For Life Planting Foundation has procured several acres in the Midwest just for these little guys. Over the course of the next 12 months we will be setting up new homes so they can live safe and secure.
If you have property, set aside a section of your property for a hive or donate to the foundation (specify the donation is for the bees) and we'll put 100% of your donation towards all the necessary bee equipment and procurement of the bees. A minimum 10% of annual Lesson Cafe revenues are donated to the Food For Life Planting Foundation.
