Bee a honey and consider joining Rotarians for Bees
Did you know…you can help save your local environment without even leaving the house? Bees in your neighborhood are dying due to a lack of flowering plants to feed on. Humans need bees to survive and you can help by adding three bee-friendly plants to your balcony or garden.
It’s as simple as 1, 2, Bee!

1. Source your bee-friendly seeds locally
2. Plant your seeds
3. Share your new plants and 3 positive thoughts or actions
There’s a growing buzz amongst Rotarians to get more active in supporting Rotary’s latest area of focus, the environment. Anyone in eClub of Greater Sydney or beyond who is interested in environment, conservation, gardens, climate change and yes, bees, is invited to contact Environment Director Judy Charnaud to learn how you can get involved.

Members Doug Vincent and Penny Vos, along with President Val Bland, have already jumped on board with other Rotarians and friends to support bees and pollinators, with the goal of ensuring food security around the world. On April 19, they visited the dynamic town of Hall ACT (near Canberra) and learned how this community has collaborated to embrace bees.
If you would like to visit Hall, too,  an ideal opportunity is coming up with activities planned around World Bee Day May 17-22. Special fora at embassies in Canberra, a farmer’s market in Hall and other family-friendly events are planned.
 Have a look at this short video about Hall:
