Check Out These Great Documentaries On Bees!

Heads up to all you beekeepers, farmers, gardeners and informed eaters out there: there’s an exciting new documentary on the essential service (pollination) that bees and wild pollinators provide to our food supply. The film is called “More Than Honey” and is currently making its rounds through the North American film festival circuit. Keep your eyes peeled for any chance to see this film in a theatre near you (and please keep Farms At Work updated if you hear of any screenings that are coming up locally!). In the meantime, you can check out the trailer here. This film looks amazing!

You may also be interested in a film that was shown to large crowds at last year’s Guelph Organic Conference, called Queen of the Sun. It’s similar in scope and would be of just as much interest to many of you out there!
