MILTON'S BILLION BACKYARD BEE PROJECT
You've probably heard about bee colony collapse, the devasating situation affecting bee populations - the very bees who pollinate one-third of all food consumed by humans. An ambitious Milton 12-year old, Sebastian Wright, is doing his part to re-populate honeybees in our community with the Milton Billion Backyard Bee Project. Understanding the important role bees play in our food chain, and being inspired by Sebastians entrepreneurial spirit, we wanted to help. The Fruit Center has contributed $800 to support Sebastian's new hive residing at New England Base Camp on Unquity Road in Milton.
