A nice note from Miss Rebecca, Grade six teacher at the Toko School in New Zealand, to Mike Everly, Bees and Trees Manuka Honey owner.
The kids made a piece of wood string art for Raul to say thank you and Merry Christmas.
Mike, I can't thank you and Raul enough for getting involved in our bee journey. The support we have received from you both has been outstanding. The kids are loving the experience and you guys have helped make it possible. Raul is so busy at the moment but always makes time to come and check the hives and help us out.
This really has been an amazing journey, not only for the kids but also for me as their teacher. I am really enjoying it and look forward to learning even more next year.
We also look forward to seeing you in the new year. I am teaching a new class at school next year and they are super excited to be working with the bees.
Thank you so much

Have you heard that honeybees never sleep? It seems to be a notion that is perpetuated by word of mouth. Researchers say otherwise. It just goes to prove that you can’t believe everything you hear.
According to Jürgen Tautz in his book The Buzz About Bees, foragers enter a pronounced state of sleep—largely at night and in the hive. However, sometimes they sleep outside the hive as well. In addition, beekeepers and bee photographers the world over have reported seeing bees asleep in flowers. The bees may remain stationary for hours, only to fly away when disturbed.
