The BUZZ is a group of concerned citizens working together since late 2013 under the auspices of the Bermuda Environmental Sustainability Taskforce (BEST) to look into the causes of the decline in bee populations locally and globally.

Their invitation to the community to be curious about our bees began with a BEE Fair in April 2014 and included a panel discussion to encourage a widespread understanding of the importance of bees.

In March 2015 the group hosted an organic beekeeper who conducted a workshop to share information about his own practices from his beekeeping business, Dancing Bee Gardens, in Middlebury, Vermont.

Currently the group is working with their new mission “to protect the environment and human health by advocating for effective regulations on pesticide sales and use within an island-wide Integrated Pest Management program”, believing that a healthy environment makes for healthy people.
