Berkeley Fellowship of Unitarian Universalists’ Hall

Event Type Screening
Honeybees have been mysteriously disappearing across the planet, literally vanishing from their hives and Bayer Labs (with offices in Berkeley) has something to do with it!
Known as Colony Collapse Disorder, this phenomenon has brought beekeepers to crisis in an industry responsible for pollinating crops that make up one out of every three bites of food on our tables.
“Vanishing of the Bees” follows commercial beekeepers David Hackenberg and Dave Mendes as they strive to keep their bees healthy and fulfill pollination contracts across the U.S. The film explores the struggles they face as the two friends plead their case on Capital Hill and travel across the Pacific Ocean in the quest to protect their honeybees. The documentary provides viewers with tangible solutions they can apply to their everyday lives.
After the film we’ll have a discussion and information from Friends of the Earth on actions we can take in Berkeley and beyond. Please bring plastic free snacks to share at 6:30 if you'd like to. The film follows at 7:00.
