What is The Bee Girl Organization?
In this Women to Watch installation, we highlight The Bee Girl Organization, local to Southern Oregon’s Rogue Valley, whose service extends far beyond our region. Their mission? 'To educate and inspire communities to conserve bees, their flowers, and our countryside.'
Bee Girl Organization
BGO is a women-led organization of Four ‘worker bees’ supported by seven furry ‘support staff’ animals keeping them in line. This small but mighty team is buz-z-y preparing for their annual Hive to Glass fundraiser, so we veered from our normal Q&A format. Besides that, their website is SO packed with information, resources, links, photos, and the latest ‘buzz’ that it actually left us questionless and in awe of the variety and breadth of their work.
Here are a few links and highlights that especially perked our interest:
Vineyards can collaborate with BGO to learn bee-friendly vine management that reduces harm and supports habitat, which benefits the vineyard and the bees long term.
