Shannon and Bailey Weaver and their group of lovely Ladies had the first ever Lavender Festival in our town. What a great turn out! My hope is that this is an event for years to come. There was delicious edibles, antiques, crafts, classes, a massage both and all things lavender.

Shannon, thank you for adding my book, A Short History of the Honey Bee to your selection of wonderful products at the festival. Bee’s love lavender and we all depend on Bee’s so very much for our food!

“Bee populations are so low in the US that it now takes 60% of the country’s surviving colonies just to pollinate one California crop, almonds. And that’s not just a west coast problem—California supplies 80% of the world’s almonds, a market worth $4 billion.”

These almond trees depend on bee pollination.  Without pollination by honey bees, as many as two thirds of edible plants and roughly a third of the average U.S. diet would simply disappear.
