Bee the Change

Our existence depends on the honeybee. Without the bees, we have no food. Without the food, we have no us.

It's really very simple.

Over recent years, the number of locavores across the country who are sustaining bee life and home have increased. By building and caring for their own apiaries, these backyard beekeepers are responding to the mystery of disappearing bees coined by experts as, "Colony Collapse Disorder."

"Vanishing of the Bees," hosted by Ellen Page, raises awareness of the tiny insect's importance to our natural food sources and the calamity that might ensue should they vanish for good.

Join The Locavore Project, Saturday, Aug. 13, 2-4p as we screen for the first time in West Virginia this important film. Area beekeeper and native plant grower, Eldon Winston, will conduct a post-film Q&A, provide details about planting a successful bee garden and help you understand how to start your own apiary. Eversweet Apiaries will conduct a honey tasting and Albert & Arnold's wine shop will be on hand to pour honey wine known as mead.
