Patches by The/Studio:How did you find out about us?
Chelsea McFarland: Google
Chelsea McFarland: We at HoneyLove believe that the city is the last refuge of the honeybee. Our home gardens are generally free of pesticides, and in cities like Los Angeles, there is year-round availability of pollen and nectar for the honeybees!Why support honey bees? Bees pollinate 80% of the world’s plants including 90 different food crops.1 out of every 3 or 4 bites of food you eat is thanks to bees.
Thank you Mr. and Mrs. McFarland for sharing your patch story with us! What they do is truly inspiring and amazing! To find out how you can support HoneyBees please visit HoneyLove.org
