The New Spikenard Sanctuary Calendar!
April 2021 - March 2022
A sanctuary is a place of healing, beauty, reflection, learning, and inspiration. By observing the natural world around us, we have the opportunity to deepen our connection to all living beings and thus to ourselves as well. With this calendar, we invite you to put on your “bee goggles” and follow the pollinators and the flowers through their yearly cycle around the Sun.
As the beekeeping year begins and ends in April, so does our calendar. Common record keeping in the world of beekeeping such as hive losses and honey harvest are measured in this beekeeping year. The sweet new year in early spring brings essential sources of fresh forage, such as the dandelion bloom, which allows the overwintered colonies to spring forth into the new growing season and expand into the diversity and abundance of nature.
