Henry Miller turned a hobby into a business—plus he’s giving back to his helpers in this mission: the bees!
When he received a beehive for his birthday, he started cultivating the honey and donating to The Foundation for the Preservation of Honey Bees. These busy pollinators are threatened by pesticides, disease and more but are critical to our food supply’s health. Hopefully Henry’s lead may teach more children to appreciate and understand the importance of bees!
Here’s a recipe from Henry; it’s a sweet and spicy twist on a favorite snack. For more info, visit http://www.facebook.com/Henrys.Stingers
