World Bee Day

Last year, the United Nations declared May 20 as “World Bee Day”.

As beekeepers, we know the importance of bees.

While honey and beeswax are a nice byproduct of keeping bees and we may have gotten into beekeeping for those reasons, as time went on we begin to see the greater importance of these small creatures.

Beginning on Saturday, May 19th and going through the 21st we will be doing our part to “save the bees”

We will accomplish this by holding a special follow loop on Instagram and having you create educational posts using your own personal beekeeping related photos *** that have been watermarked with the picture below ***

The idea is to push as much bee related content over those days, as possible to increase public awareness about the importance of bees.

Are you game?

Let’s do it we can to educate and fill IG with our love of bees during those 3 days.

If you’d like to participate, Please send me a DM…direct message.

Let’s save some bees!!!

Instagram Loop Giveaway

We are going to host a Winter Wellness Loop Giveaway in the next 2 weeks.

This is our first one and I think the cold and flu season is the perfect time to host this loop!

We are looking for brands who offer items that will help their customers get through these tough winter months: examples: shower steamers, breath easy essential oil roller balls, medicinal herbs, things to pamper oneself with when sick, etc.

Do you want to be a part of the loop?!

If you and your brand would like to participate, please follow this blog and send an email to MistyMeadowsAdventures@gmail.com letting me know you want to participate and what you’d like to include from your shop.

Know a shop that might like to participate? Feel free to share this post!
