BEE BETTER TOGETHER
Honeybee Sanctuary to Save and Support Bees
We know our pollinators are in trouble so at Hiveologie we have chosen this critical social mission and currently pledge 3% of all course sales, and 100% of honey closing gift profits, directly to real hives. All funds go to support and grow our dedicated honeybee sanctuary in the Finger Lakes, New York.
We invested in the establishment of hives in May 2021, and we already support approximately 2,000,000 happy honeybees. Our goal is to support bees and the growth of our apiary for, well, more bees. And then more apiaries.
With every course or closing gift purchase, you will automatically participate directly in saving and supporting 1,000s of bees.
We are proud to announce the addition of honey closing gifts now available for sale with 100% of profits to further support this mission.
This Is Worth My Beeswax!
