Local Beekeeper Receives Grant Money

Dell City HoneyDavid Jastram and Dell City Honey recently received grant money from The Pollination Project on July 26th as part of their Daily Giving 2014 campaign.  Jastram told the Pollination Project, “With the continuing loss of habitat, the bees are in serious decline. I keep bees as a hobby, and have discovered a large amount of interest from rural land owners who would like to have bees on their property, but are fearful of them, so they are looking to others to place hives for them. That’s where I can help.”

Funds received will provide lumber for Jastram to build 20 beehives and place them around rural South Dakota to support the honeybee population.The Pollination Project awards $1,000 start-up grants to individuals and projects that promote compassion around the world.  The Pollination Project’s Daily Giving Community is a team of 40+ people who help provide the $1000 grants every day.  More information about The Pollination Project can be found at their website, http://thepollinationproject.org/.
