Hello sweet Beez Kneez backers!
We've done it, finally: gotten everyone* rewards who we have contact information for!!! Thank you all so much for making the Beez Kneez Honey House a reality, we are so honored to have done it with you all!
*There are two exceptions:
-$100 TIny Diner dinner for two backers (there are 10 of you.) Tiny Diner is now open, it's glorious, and we're in the process of coordinating your dinner with them. We hope to get you more information in the next few weeks.
-$45 Honey Futures backers (also 10 of you.) The bees are busy gathering nectar and making honey this year, and we'll be sending out a survey to gather information for you all soon- with delivery date of early August.
IF YOU AREN'T ONE OF THESE 20 PEOPLE AND YOU HAVEN'T RECEIVED YOUR REWARD YET IT'S BECAUSE WE DON'T KNOW HOW TO GET IT TO YOU. If that's you- please email Erin@thebeezkneezdelivery.com and we'll figure out how to get you your reward.
Since last year when you first supported us, we've been doing so much! We opened our honey house, extracted over a ton of honey with local beekeepers, led a teacher workshop with Minneapolis Public Schools and Hennepin County Environmental Services on pollinators, had a big party to celebrate the spring and dandelions, taught people young and old in beekeeping suits as field trips, birthday parties, work retreats, and dates, started our Healthy Bees Healthy Lives campaign and got two pollinator laws passed in Minnesota! Yippee! Your support continues to be foundational in all the work we do.
This summer, the Beez Kneez Honey House is open Saturdays from 3-8pm, come on over and see what you helped us build! We love hosting out of town Kickstarter visitors- let us know if you're in the Twin Cities and we'll open special for you.
We're delivering honey and tending bees- 70 hives this year. Our in hive classes have started for the season- and we'd love to share more about what's going on with bees and what we can all do to help them with you all in a class. Visit www.thebeezkneezdelivery.com/education for more info and to register.
And- join us in raising awareness of the very real work we can all do for bees- planting clean food. Take our Healthy Bees Healthy Lives pledge and share your support with a lawn sign!
Thank you all so so so much! It's been such a joy to do this with you all!!
Erin and Kristy, The Beez Kneez
