🐝 Hi all, seeking some guidance and brainstorming ideas! 🐝
I have a new online store launching in the new year, stocking garden and botanical decor. I want to add a catagory dedicated to protecting our pollinators. Native bees, honey bees, insects and birds. A portion of the profits will be donated to Save The Bees Australia.
To raise awareness I'd like to stock products from small businesses that make insect hotels, bird nesters, hives etc.

My questions are:
What other handmade items do you know of that support our tiniest natives?
Which other local organisations do you reccomend for donations?
What sort of small products would be suitable to for beginners? (I'm thinking heirloom seeds to grow insect friendly gardens etc)

I'm open to ALL ideas and suggestions, and would love to get in touch with any suppliers that would like to collaborate!

@andydonaldson_ A no mess technique for uncapping honey before you spin it. Andy tried three ways of uncapping honey. The blow dryer was the most annoying because of the noise , the standard electric heat knife was a little messy, a serrated bread knife worked best in the end. Some of the honey in this frame was crystallised. The capping melted before the honey showing the honey didn’t get to hot.

Heat can damage honey
Honey should not be heated rapidly, over direct heat. Basically, the hotter you heat it, the more potential for reducing nutritional value. Excessive heat can have detrimental effects on the nutritional value of honey. Heating up to 37°C (98.6 F) causes loss of nearly 200 components, part of which are antibacterial. Heating up to 40°C (104 F) destroys invertase, an important enzyme. Heating up to 50°C (122 F) for more than 48 hrs. turns the honey into caramel (the most valuable honey sugars become analogous to sugar). Heating honey higher than 140 degrees F for more than 2 hours will cause rapid degradation. Heating honey higher than 160 for any time period will cause rapid degradation and caramelization. Generally any larger temperature fluctuation (10°C is ideal for preservation of ripe honey) causes decay. -John Skinner, University of Tennessee
