Ahhh. Spring has sprung! As our moods and energies begin to lift and the buds begin to blossom, perhaps you, like us, have been getting the garden prepped and ready for a delicious summer bounty. Be sure to plant lots of flowers too! Not only is it beautiful to have a variety of colourful flowers in the garden, it’s also great for attracting bees. Why not encourage bees to spend time in your garden by sowing some wildflowers, borage, and calendula.
Another wonderful product of bees (other than honey), is their versatile wax. You may have heard about beeswax wraps, which can take the place of clingfilm in your kitchen. Check out our "make it yourself" section, where Sophia of Frida and Fauna teaches you to make your own handy beeswax wraps at home with the kids! Also tucked within these colourful pages you’ll find helpful advice and articles about preparing for birth – both the inner and outer journey, those important recovery months postpartum, breastfeeding support, babywearing and lots of gentle parenting techniques and tactics you can try at home so that you can remain connected to your child and encourage them to bloom.
