Bee the Change: Honeybees point the way to a better world

It’s National Honeybee Day this Saturday, Aug. 20, and in spite of the threats facing honeybee populations in many areas, the Asheville-based Friends of Honeybees wants to celebrate. Taking its name from the familiar quote from Mahatma Gandhi, FOHB’s new “Bee the Change” campaign plans to donate a portion of its income to other non-profit causes, whether or not they relate directly to honey bees.
