To The Daily Sun,
We need to save our bees! Have you noticed that our bee and monarch population is declining? This is of great concern to me. Many species of bees have been listed on the endangered species list. We need bees! Our food supply and environment is being compromised. We need monarchs too. Many of us are concerned that the use of the pesticide called glysophate which has been determined by the World Health Organization as a possible carcinogen.
If you are interested in learning about saving the bees and monarchs, promoting organic solutions, organic gardening ideas, raising awareness of the harm of pesticides and neonicotinoids, promoting food and seed sovereignty, and protecting biodiversity for our future seven generations, then please come to the N.H.
