To celebrate World Bee Day, Ilanga-Nature plans to plant new forests of trees to feed the bees for the beekeepers they support across Madagascar.

‘Trees feed Bees’ is a webinar showcase of the incredible work Ilanga-Nature have done to improve the wellbeing and income of hundreds of beekeepers across this incredible island. Join this global impact movement by investing in the tree planting project, you will be rewarded with some of the purest honey in the world today from magical trees, rarely found elsewhere.

Combining the medicinal qualities of exotic trees and flowers the rich flora and warm climate provides year round forage for the bees, who in turn share their bounty with the beekeepers. Ilanga-Nature have selected a range with ‘starter packages’ for superior retailers looking for sustainable honey suppliers. By supporting these beekeepers, you are ensuing the replanting of precious forests and maintaining a diverse and valuable ecology for the entire planet.
