Morgan Freeman Converted His 124-Acre Ranch Into A Giant Bee Sanctuary
March 22, 2019
Morgan Freeman is doing his part to help the environment by converting his 124-acre ranch in Mississippi into a giant bee sanctuary.
The 81-year-old actor said he has taken up beekeeping to help revive the declining bee population.
"There is a concerted effort for bringing bees back onto the planet… We do not realize that they are the foundation, I think, of the growth of the planet, the vegetation," he said.
Freeman imported 26 bee hives from Arkansas to his ranch in Mississippi where he has help feeding the bees sugar water and planting bee-friendly trees and plants.
Freeman added that he never wears a bee suit or a bee hat and they haven't stung him yet.
"I have not ever used the beekeeping hat with my bees," he said. "They haven't stung me yet, as right now I am not trying to harvest honey or anything, but I just feed them…I also think that they understand, 'Hey, don't bother this guy, he's got sugar water here'."
