About This Activity

The Run Happy Bee Happy event will kick off at 9am with the 5k Run/Walk followed by the Kids’ Run. The course will take place at Burroughs Family Farms where participants will run along their organic almond orchards that are planted on rolling hills. Race participants will also get to experience a running tour of Burroughs Family Farms organic and sustainable practices – including their solar panel sites, farm-made compost, biodiverse beneficial hedgerows, and organic pastured hens. Following the race, participants will enjoy brunch made with Burroughs Family Farm products and other locally-sourced organic foods. For those not running you may also enjoy the fun activities and the wonderful brunch. Brunch will include quiche, yogurt parfait, various fruits and granola, coffee, lemonade and some adult beverages. You won't leave hungry.

Planet Bee Foundation is a San Francisco based non-profit with the mission to produce the next generation of environmental stewards by working with local schools, non-profits and businesses to provide free or low cost hands-on educational programs and activities, internships and volunteer opportunities. Planet Bee Foundation achieves this by giving these local entities the tools, knowledge, and passion needed to help the honeybee endure, so it can do the job nature intended -- pollinate the world's food crops. Planet Bee Foundation’s platform is to spread awareness so that we can change the world, one bee at a time - whether by keeping honeybees, planting bee friendly gardens, choosing consciously not to use pesticides, buying local honey, or simply by spreading the word.
