Image of a beeThe Honey Bee is the world’s most important pollinator of food crops. Did you know that one out of every three bites of food are made available to us by the act of pollination by the honey bee?

We need the honey bee and the honey bee needs your help! One way we can help the honey bee is through beekeeping.

The Toe Cane Beekeepers Association (TCBA) is researching the interest in providing a 4-H group of children an education in the world of the Honey Bees. Hopefully these students will become future beekeepers to help with the survival of the honey bee.

The TCBA would like to present a monthly program, at the N.C. Cooperative Extension of Mitchell County’s offices, to educate our local children in the secluded world of the honey bee. They will learn, about the honey bee and her hive, how the honey bee helps to produce our food, how they can help the honey bee and hopefully one day become a certified beekeeper.

To get more information please contact the N.C. Cooperative Extension of Mitchell County (828-688-4811) or Yancey County (828-682-6186) before April 15, 2019.
