(PRESS RELEASE) Inspired by Dr. Marla Spivak at the University of Minnesota (UMN) Bee Lab, the Bee Squad helps beekeepers and the community foster healthy bee populations and pollinator landscapes through education and hands-on mentorship. They also communicate the latest bee research to audiences that are passionate about helping bees. They have a multitude of programs to help bees by educating people. Currently, Bee Veterans, Bee Arts, and Pollinator Ambassadors, a project that provides pollinator outreach training to diverse groups ranging from high school students to adult Spanish-speaking immigrants, are part of the Bee Squad.
 
Gumuchian’s recent donation to City Growers went to help fund their newest honeybee initiative: Brooklyn Bee Corps. A program where Brooklyn-based teens embarked on a summer of beekeeping and native plant restoration, they spent 8 weeks immersed in 5 City Growers hives. Participants learned how to check on the bees, assess their health, find their queen, and all about the glorious honeybee – why we keep bees, what’s happening with the bees across the country and the world, and how honeybees play an important role in our food system. Participants also engaged in native plant restoration on two sites in Brooklyn, learning about native bees and pollinators in the process.

Wilkerson Testimonials | Sollberger’s

Going Out of Business Is an Emotional Journey. Wilkerson Is There to Make It Easier.

Jaki Cowan, the owner of Sollberger’s in Ridgeland, MS, decided the time was right to close up shop. The experience, she says, was like going into the great unknown. There were so many questions about the way to handle the store’s going-out-of-business sale. Luckily for Cowan, Wilkerson made the transition easier and managed everything, from marketing to markdowns.

“They think of everything that you don’t have the time to think of,” she says of the Wilkerson team that was assigned to manage the sale. And it was a total success, with financial goals met by Christmas with another sale month left to go.

Wilkerson even had a plan to manage things while Covid-19 restrictions were still in place. This included limiting the number of shoppers, masking and taking temperatures upon entrance. “We did everything we could to make the staff and public feel as safe as possible.”

Does she recommend Wilkerson to other retailers thinking of retiring, liquidating or selling excess merchandise? Absolutely. “If you are considering going out of business, it’s obviously an emotional journey. But truly rest assured that you’re in good hands with Wilkerson.”
