Once again, movie cameras rolled into Oakhurst to film. Over the past week, Olive47, a famous Atlanta artist, painted a mural on the side of a building in Oakhurst Village with the help from other local artists. The mural will be featured in a video to promote a national initiative called Feed a Bee. Feed a Bee aims to increase habitats for bees and other pollinators so they can thrive. In 2015, 250,000 consumers pledged to plant 65 million flowers to provide bees with more food. After filming was completed, planter boxes and plants used to landscape the set were donated to our community. Thank you to the Bayer Bee Care Program and Porter Novelli, a public relations firm which was overseeing the project, for making our community a more beautiful place.
Did you know that a bee must visit 2 million flowers to make one pound of honey?
