Billions of honey bees have been disappearing from hives across the United States, a phenomenon scientists call Colony Collapse Disorder. Colony collapse is significant because many agricultural crops depend on pollination by bees. While all of the causes of this disaster are yet to be established, recent studies have implicated the use of neonicotinoid pesticides and insecticide-producing genetically engineered crops. Tell Congress to ban these toxic pesticides and GMOs!
Few organic bee keepers have reported bee losses, which suggests
that natural and organic bee keeping methods may be the solution.
Ross Conrad is an excellent book, explaining
both the roots of the current bee crisis and long-term solutions
for healthy bee hives.
Featuring Michael Pollan, Vandana Shiva, Gunther Hauk and beekeepers from around the world, this engaging, alarming and ultimately uplifting film examines the dire global bee crisis through the eyes of biodynamic beekeepers, scientists, farmers, and philosophers.
