Please read Douglas Tallamy’s book, Bringing Nature Home, before the Conference in November. If you are interested in native plants, ecosystems, songbirds and other wildlife, this book will provide much useful and interesting information.
My presentation will be about how I became interested in honeybees
and where my research has led me. It will begin with very basic
information about honeybees and how they are important to our
ecology. Then I will touch on how the monocultures and
pesticides and GMO/systemic pesticides are
killing the bees and our culture and environment as we know it.
I will have pamphlets on GMO’s, how to make your own
pesticides/insecticides that are safe for pollinators, what plants
to grow to encourage a bio-diverse ecology at home for pollinators
and a few others.
