3 things: 1, I'm glad this is helping people that need it, but lets make
sure those people aren't being worked to death, for next to nothing, in
exchange for our convenience like we've seen in China. 2. It'd be
good if this is environmentally and fiscally sustainable. I'd hate to fall
in love with it only to have it disappear because it dried up the resources
needed for it. 3. Honey got a promotion in General Conference this weekend in
one of the talks. Nice little boost there?
There is almost no chance of being worked to death from beekeeping since it
requires very little work to maintain a healthy bee hive. Also, bees do not
deplete resources so that is also out. Pollination helps with plants and will
benefit the area.This is a great, small project that will benefit
the population. Good idea!
Pay no attention to the doubt caster behind the curtain... Steady income, better
access to clean water. All Aseda has to do is let bees do what they do
naturally, which is help plants pollinate and flourish. In return, making honey
for the distributor, whose employees can process it easily, with little
environmental impact, sell it for a profit, providing jobs here and a sweet food
product for us to purchase and enjoy. Being able to promote it at the LDS
General conference seems like good marketing. The beauty of a free market is the
ability to take advantage of good opportunities. It sounds like a win-win to me.
I am entirely in favor of helping the people there, as well as anywhere, make
use of their resources and improve lives. That said, I think it would be
preferable for the market to be closer to home, and also benefit the people in
that locale with a good product. Utahns should eat honey produced in their own
areas, and it is great that more small beekeeping companies are developing close
to home. Food, like government, should be taken care of close to home and
utilized close to home.
So which stores in Utah carry it? I'm willing to give it a try!
