That’s right, Green Life Farms is producing honey!
If you have ever visited the ACE Campus, you may remember the security building on the left as you drive into the yard. It’s no longer a security building – it’s the new Honey Hut for Galina Bees Honey. Thanks to our Bee Master Patrick Haywood and our number one Bee student, Anthony Clarke, 68 pounds of honey were reaped from the hives located on the grounds.
Some of our friends and volunteers were present to experience the reaping and extraction of the pure honey in the Honey Hut. If you have never seen how honey is collected and squeezed out of the comb, you’ve got to put this on your “honey bucket” list. The honey is being bottled and labeled Galina Bees and is part of the Green Life Farm production. Anthony is now beginning to see the benefits of bee keeping. As he receives donations for his honey, it goes into his savings account for school. It really is a sweet deal for everyone. Got any ideas of what we can mix with our honey? One person suggested peanut butter – yum! We’d welcome any ideas!
An ACE donor took the time and money to invest in Anthony and his endeavors, and now we all will benefit. Thank you! Who are you investing in this year? It’s another way to build futures for students who want to learn and build relationships with the senior adults. If no one comes to mind, we have a few suggestions, so let us know if you feel called to invest in the future!RETURN TO NEWSLETTER Tags: honey, Jamaica, Jamaican honey, mico-business, microenterprise
