17 August – World Honey Bee Day

 

World Honey Bee Day - Elizabeth Place

World Honey Bee Day honours honey bees and beekeeping. Honey Bee awareness enthusiasts will likely put a bee in your bonnet and say this is not so much a day to celebrate honey bees, as it is to promote sustainable farming.

On this day, bee lovers everywhere decorate their gardens with lavender, borage and marjoram, the bee’s knees in pollinator lures.
