Happy New Year 2022! 

Looking back to 2021, we can’t help but feeling grateful for everything our artist partners were able to accomplish. Last year was extremely challenging for artists and small businesses, especially in Peru and other countries with little financial support. 

With so many changes, it is time for our artist partners to update their pricing to remain viable. Expect New Wholesale Prices to go into effect, January 20th, 2022.

And while these handmade gifts help raise awareness for all pollinators, they double their goodness by supporting decent livelihoods for the artists' communities who created them!

Every time we bite into a crispy apple, a fragrant apricot, a juicy strawberry or tomato, we have some bees to thank! As champion pollinators, honeybees and about 20,000 native bee species fly from flower to flower collecting pollen for their colonies while spreading pollen from plant to plant, doing an invaluable service that supports all life.

Download a PDF for these fun farm paper finger puppets of a cow, horse, pig and more! Print on cardstock or heavy paper (8.5x11”) and cut along the dotted lines.

Otherwise, size the band to a finger and you’re good to play!
