We are co-hosting an evening fundraiser at the beautiful Ramscale Lofts, West Village, New York to support the “ Vanishing of the Bees” film documentary.
The Honey Bee Conservancy and The Natural Resources Defense Council, our colleagues, are also supporting the evening, which will include previews from the film and a Q & A with the two directors, George Langworthy and Maryam Henein.
A collection of NY State vineyards are kindly providing the wines. Ramscale are generously donating the space.
Tickets can be purchased here at a suggested price of $20 per person.
In the spring of 2010 we are planning to install hives in Oklahoma on Comanche territory and also in NY State on Seneca and Mohawk reservations.
Helen will be talking about Bee Native at schools and colleges, explaining the environmental dilemma we face, to students. She will be bringing her observation hive on the short trips and will later be offering this program to corporations and other interested institutions.
