While vegans choose not to eat honey bee products, we certainly employ them in the pollination of up to 3/4 of food crops, such as almonds, tree fruits, squash, and more.
We care so much about how bees are treated as well as the future of sustainable agriculture, so Eternal Abundance is hosting the screening of "Saving the Life Keepers". The Director-Producer and Master Beekeeper of the film are both local fellows, and will be in attendance!
About the film:
"Saving the Life Keepers" is a visual delight for the eyes and reveals how local citizens, farmers, small and large businesses as well as beekeepers can help protect and preserve bee populations throughout the world. This documentary offers several practical solutions including utilizing the biodiversity of plants; mass plantings of protein rich flowers; Queen bee organic mating yards; how to fight bee parasites and diseases without chemicals and antibiotics; and how beekeepers work successfully with productive and resistant Africanized bees. A humanistic adventure based on the extraordinary realities of the present, this documentary marks the way to sustain the future for generations of people and bees yet to come.
