Bees are a vital part of the Texas ecosystem. Kept on farms, in backyards, on balconies and in high-rise rooftops, bees can be found all across the state of Texas. However, due to colony collapse disorder, that number is steadily decreasing. Since 2006, beekeepers have seen the number of bees lost to winterkill increase dramatically. Integral to maintaining biodiversity, bees play a large role in maintaining native plant communities and agricultural crops.
Bee Educated was launched in 2016 by Dee Lynn Braman as an effort to educate her community about the bee population collapse. Bee Educated, serves as a non-profit organization dedicated to educating youth about honey bees and involving the public in efforts to preserve the species and habitat.
Through educational events, resources and retail products, Bee Educated and Bee Organic provide Texans the opportunity to engage with a nationwide problem by becoming more informed citizens. making better purchasing decisions and taking action to prevent colony collapse disorder.
