About the BeeQuilibrium Foundation
The BeeQuilibrium Foundation is a non-profit 501(c)3, that is dedicated to protecting pollinator habitat, preserving natural resources, and saving farmlands. While California is known for its beautiful sun, surf, and sand, we are also the nation’s leading farm state. California alone is home to more than 200 vital crops of fruits and vegetables. Some of these crops are grown nowhere else in the nation. Crops include grapes, almonds, strawberries, oranges, and walnuts. California produces almost all of the country’s almonds, apricots, dates, figs, kiwi fruit, nectarines, olives, pistachios, prunes, and walnuts. The Central Valley in the center of California is a major agriculture region, and it helps The Golden State yield more crops and farm-based goods than any other U.S. state. …Bees provide more than 80% of our world’s food supply, and if they go, so do we. We work to inspire, educate, empower, collaborate and create with people near and far, on the importance of our master pollinators.
The founder of BeeQuilbrium owns and operates two bee rescue companies, both for over 20 years. This commercial platform is the bedrock for the obsession in bee conservation. These direct resources help to provide us with the most crucial part of our work- saving the bees. The rescued bees are safe from external threats, are well care for and to continue to thrive.
BeeQuilbrium gives rescued hives to urban beekeepers looking to start or expand their beekeeping efforts, helps to replace hives to beekeepers that may have lost their hives from disease, theft or from the loss over winter and also builds rooftop apiaries on residential and commercial property, helping to establish greenbelts in more densely developed cities, using similar concepts like a greenway or green wedge; which have a linear character and may run through an urban area instead of around it. We also want to increase efforts on building traditional greenbelts that incorporate using designated land use planning to retain areas of largely undeveloped, wild, or agricultural land surrounding or neighboring urban areas. We work with many California farmers and growers to help pollinate their crops during different times of the year. As the foundation grows our hope is to expand our efforts across the United States and help other farmers in procuring hives to pollinate their crops. Most states do not have enough local bees that can be rented or procured, in order to pollinate the needs of its state crops, so farmers are forced to look elsewhere across the country to fulfill their crop pollination requirements.
The foundation will continue to build large scale coalitions with lasting solutions. We teach people of all ages about beekeeping and our guest speakers at events, schools, universities, conferences, and symposiums. We are always here to help, and we are just a phone call away.
