Shana Tova U'Metukah!
As the resident beekeeper at Bela Farm, the weeks leading up to Rosh Hashana are particularly meaningful for me. I get to spend quality time with the hard-working honey bees that live at Bela Farm. Working with honeybees is a constant reminder of the power, necessity and wisdom of collective action. It takes all 60,000 bees per colony (including 1 queen, 55 000 female worker bees and approximately 5000 male drones) to build their home, raise their children, pollinate our fruits and vegetables and make sweet honey. Just like us, all the bees are essential to the overall functioning of the hive.
While there I felt inspired by the sheer energy of 400,000 coming together to demand change. I also felt a deep sadness as the reality of this mess we have gotten ourselves into. Climate change is no longer an "environmental issue." It's a serious global issue that can't be ignored. It will take all of us, working together as a team to turn this world around!
May we learn from the honeybees how to work together and create a sweeter, more fruitful and sustainable world.
