World Bee Day

World Bee Day

The United Nations designated May 20th as World Bee Day to raise awareness of the importance of pollinators, the threats they face, and their contribution to sustainable development.

At Joseph Phelps Vineyards, we participate in the Bee Where program coordinated by the state of California. This program allows us to notify our local beekeepers when we will be applying protective plant sprays, which are done at night and early morning before the pollinators are active.

Celebrate our endangered pollinators by planting nectar-bearing flowers for decorative purposes on balconies, terraces, and gardens, buy honey and other hive products from your nearest local beekeepers, and raise awareness among children and adolescents on the importance of bees.
