Vanishing of the Bees
Bees have been disappearing all over the world recently in episodes called Colony Collapse Disorder. This is most likely linked to the systemic use of pesticides in modern agriculture through the growth of large mono-cultures. The bees appear to be the most susceptible part of the system that is taking the hit first. But we need to take note – this is a warning for us. The way we are treating the earth, and ignoring the ways of nature, cannot have a happy ending.
Inside the cover of the DVD, there’s this wonderful text;
You can bee the change every day. Here’s how.
Vote with you fork – Buying organic produce helps nurture the food systems that take better care of bees and everything else on the planet.
Stop home pesticide use – Natural cleaners and pest remedies are safer, more effective and less expensive than toxic chemicals. Get rid of the poisons in your cabinets, garages and lawns.
Plant a garden – Grow yummy food, delicious herbs, beautiful flowers – it improves your health and helps the bees. Even people in apartments can use planters or raise a window garden!
Raise awareness – The first step to activate change is education. Let people know about the bee crisis, the very real dangers of widespread pesticide use and our perilous agricultural landscape.
