We have two exciting new collaborations between small, local, women-owned local businesses. South Mountain Bees is pleased to partner with Connie's Threads and DBee Botanical Art.
The weather is changing and the fall colors in the reservation are spectacular. The foliage reflection on the reservoir water is breathtaking. The terrapins are too shy to show up. It is fall, and four women owned small businesses decided to get together to offer a fall giveaway. Want to play?

“Save the bees” has become a common phrase, as certain species of bees have been placed on the endangered species list and the honey bee population has declined. Compagnoni said taking care of them herself has made her more aware of the environment in general. She can’t use pesticides or insect spray, because it will kill her hives.
“There’s awareness that comes with the bees,” she said. “I can’t use gardening practices that are toxic. It keeps you more honest. There are indirect benefits.”
