Morgan Freeman has dedicated his huge home to help save the existence of bees
Pretty much everyone in the world knows that we like to imagine Morgan Freeman as the voice of God. He’s a f**ken top notch narrator and a top notch bloke to boot.
As evidence of that, he’s decided that his 124 acre ranch in Mississippi should be a place of sanctuary and conservation for bees.
As such, he’s loaded up on plants they love and brought a s**tload of hives in to boost numbers. Talk about a f**ken tops conservation effort.
You may be aware this isn’t some new kick Freeman’s on. Back in 2014, he spoke to Jimmy Fallon and pressed the need to conserve bees.
Obviously, bees are pretty f**ken important for the environment and without them, s**t’s gonna stop growing pretty quickly.
Freeman knows that and his beekeeping is more than a hobby to him. It’s essential work.
He told Fallon that, “There’s a concerted effort to bring bees back onto the planet. We do not realise that they are the foundation, I think, of the growth of the planet, the vegetation…I have so many flowering things and I have a gardener too.”
Since then, he’s gone the extra mile.
He’s imported more than twenty-six beehives to his ranch and allows the bees to have unhindered access to all of it. With the help of his gardener, he’s made sure the bees have everything they need.
“We’ve got acres and acres of clover, we’re planting stuff like lavender, I’ve got like, maybe 140 magnolia trees, big blossoms.”
On top of that, bloody Morgs even gets a bit hands-on with his bees. And the brave f**ker doesn’t even wear a suit. He reckons that because he’s just feeding them, he doesn’t need to.
“They haven’t [stung me] yet, because right now I’m not trying to harvest honey or anything, I’m just feeding them…I think they understand, “Hey, don’t bother this guy, he’s got sugar water here.”
With a new Candyman movie in the works, maybe Freeman’s angling for a role.
Final thought: You hear so much about celebrities being cockheads that it’s bloody refreshing to see one of them doing some good shit for the environment. Good on ya, Morgs. You’re a big bloody champion.
