NOT JUST WINGING IT
The Sonder Project is proud to announce that we are now planning to expand into agricultural endeavors, completing the entire picture of success for some of the poorest areas in the world.
Following our blueprint of sustainable solutions, The Sonder Project has been interested in agricultural solutions since our early days.
As our first PROJECT: agriculture undertaking, The Honey Hutch, to will be working with us to consult and advise to ensure that we take the project in the right direction all the way from planning to implementation.
It’s always been our goal to offer more than just funds. We want to offer the poorest people in the world the tools they need to break the cycle of poverty. In providing beehives, we are will accomplish exactly this in a number of ways.
How can beehives help break the cycle of poverty?
• Honey is the only food that includes all of the essential elements necessary to sustain life, including vitamins, minerals, enzymes and even water. Its unique chemical makeup also allows it to be preserved forever.
• In addition to creating a nutrient-rich food source, bees also create wax which can be used for making items such as candles.
• Bees also help pollinate and grow more and healthier crops.
• Many farmers that keep bees are able to harvest honey in the non-growing season. This allows them to earn extra income and produce 60 pounds or more of honey each year.
In addition to all the direct benefits to those receiving the hives, the gift of honeybees is truly beneficial to the entire global community. The fact of the matter is the worldwide bee population has significantly decreased in recent years. The effects of bee extinction would be devastating on many levels worldwide. It is estimated that 2 out of every 3 bites of food by Americans wouldn’t be possible without bees. Without bee pollination, many of our food staples would cease to exist, creating a food scarcity issue of epic proportions.
Help us save the bees and provide an extra rung on the ladder that helps those in need rise above the crippling effects of poverty.
