Why bees are disappearing

marla_spivak3_f

I’m not a big fan of bees. I’ve been stung a few times and having a beehive in my garden was something I have always dreaded. But then I heard a talk by Marla Spivak on everything to do with bees and was amazed at how ignorant most of us are about these creatures and the role they play in our lives. In fact it only goes to prove once again our arrogance towards nature and all living beings. But it is never too late and for starters, I will look forward to welcoming bees in my garden in the future. (Editor)

 

“Every one of us needs to behave a little more like a bee society and insect society where each of our individual actions can contribute to a grand solution… that’s much greater than the mere sum of our individual actions…. Let the small act of planting flowers and keeping them free of pesticides be the driver of large-scale change.”
