Breathe Azores BEE SEEDS CAMPAIGN

To Sow Bee Friendly Wildflower Seeds All over the Azores.

Breathe Azores has teamed up with The Bee Seeds Company to supply Bee Friendly Wildflower Seeds.

As you will be aware, Bees are Dying and we humans are responsible for their death. 

So, WHY have we decided to help SAVE THE BEES!

Albert Einstein said:

“IF THE BEE DISAPPEARED OFF THE FACE OF THE EARTH, MAN WOULD ONLY HAVE FOUR YEARS LEFT TO LIVE.”

NO FLOWERS NO HONEY NO BEES

Last year I went into 4 local shops to by some Azorean Honey and not one shop had any left.  When I asked why, i was told there just isn’t any honey left!  I found this really strange, so I started talking to local beekeepers and they all said the same thing. “There’s no flowers” “All the cow farmers have cut down the trees and all the hedgerows and all the flowers.” 

Here on Santa Maria, every day you see fires where some farmer or another is burning trees and bush.  This is devastating to our environment!.  This is killing our wildlife and our pollinators.

I spoke with one farmer and he said “Why do I need bees? Cows don’t eat them!”

What? 

I can’t stand by and let this happen, someone has to do something! So We, Breathe Azores are trying to help. 

We have already planted:

  • 610 Trees

  • 60 Fruit Trees

  • 1250 meters of border flowers

  • Hundreds of ground cover plants

During the next 3 months we are planting:

  • 400 Trees

  • 200 Fruit Trees

  • 2000m² of Bee Friendly Wildflowers

  • And much much more!

PLEASE HELP US TO SAVE OUR BEES

EVERYONE CAN HELP.  IT JUST TAKES A LITTLE BIT OF TIME AND MONEY.

We are NOT asking for money, we are just asking please buy some of our Bee Friendly seeds and sow them anywhere you can. You can sow them in your garden, a window box just anywhere.  Without pollinators, we will not have any crops!
