The bees have a message - but will we listen?Written by
I run a small organic apiary in Washington State. I took a year long course in bee keeping and read every book out there before I even started with my first colony. I attended all of the local Bee Keepers Association meetings and kept a journal of all of my findings during my hive inspections. I sought out natural remedies for some of the issues I had heard are common in bees in this region, I thought I was pretty well versed on the subject of organic beekeeping. AFter watching this film, I realized there was so much that I didn't know! So much that I never recognized many things to be problematic! I recommend all young and old with an interest in bees, eating healthy produce, the Earth to watch this film. It was an eye opener for me and it gave me the right kick to do what I can to make this world a better place for our bees and our future kin. I have since then accepted a position on the Board of Directors for the local bee keepers group and am trying with all my might to change the thought process of our local bee keepers! Thank you for further opening my eyes and making this wonderful film!
