Queen of the Sun - What are the bees telling us

Posted 7 years, 6 months ago    0 comments

"Queen of the Sun", an award winning new documentary film with New Zealand footage, examines the plight of the Honeybee worldwide as they mysteriously succumb to so called "Colony Collapse Disorder".

As Bees pollinate more than 40% of our food, many fruits and vegetables could disappear. Horticulture and Agriculture would not exist as we know it. We rely on Bees for much of our dietary health and wellbeing and they have come to reply on us as we have manipulated their habitat, putting them at risk of disease and infestation.

Featuring Michael Pollan, Vandana Shiva, Hugh Wilson from NZ, and many others.

There will be two showings of this movie next week in the Waikato.

Monday 18 April.
