How do I Become a Beekeeper?
Bees are an important part of our ecosystem. Did you know that if there were no bees in the world it would be hard for us to survive? According to activesustanablitiy.com
The Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) states that there are 100 crop species that provide 90% of food around the world and 71 of these are pollinated by bees.
