Honey Bee Network
The Honey Bee Network is a collective of organizations that share information about appropriate technology, grassroots innovation, folklore, and medicinal plants, sourced from villages throughout India. Honey Bee travels to rural areas to seek out local people who have developed innovative human-scale solutions to everyday problems. The network publishes this collective wisdom in an online database, and publishes a quarterly newsletter in English and seven Indian languages so that contributors who do not speak English or use the internet can benefit from it. Over the past twenty years, Honey Bee has documented more than 100,000 ideas and traditional practices. Beyond disseminating knowledge, the network’s activities cultivate pride in indigenous wisdom and community self-reliance. Learn more about the network, read the newsletter, and browse the innovations and medicinal plant databases on the Honey Bee website.
