Willoh Robbins 2012 Essay
Bees are valuable. They pollinate the food we eat like apples, squash, and melons. Bees are also valuable because they produce honey, something man can not make, but everyone loves. Bees are also becoming more valuable because they don't thrive as much.
I would be interested in having a hive to give my local CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) that my family and I are members. When it starts, every week we can go get fruits and veggies homegrown at the CSA owners farm. These include peas, peppers, corn, tomatoe, watermelon, strawberries, cantalope, and much more.
I think putting bees there would help the CSA by providing honey and spreading pollen to make the food yummier and better. I also think putting bees there would show younger children in the CSA how cool honey bees are and maybe interest the children into beekeepng.
This will be our 3rd year at the CSA. Our CSA is unique because it is organic, so honey bees would be very welcome there to spread pollen to restore damage the bad bugs have done. My dad and I talked to the CSA owners and they would be very excited and enthusiastic to get bees. They have lots of shade where we could put the bees and water sources could be provided. Puting hives there would not only benefit the CSA owners but everyone in the CSA and neighboring homes with flowers.
I think getting bees would make me proud and benefit the whole CSA community by feeding them honey and giving them a wonderful experence.
