Cornell Cooperative Extension Putnam County will hold a screening of the award-winning documentary film The Pollinators on Wednesday, August 11, 2021, at Tilly Foster Farm in Brewster at 7pm. Join us for a panel discussion with Peter Nelson and local expert beekeepers following the screening.
The Pollinators, directed by Peter Nelson, is a cinematic journey around the United States following migratory beekeepers and their truckloads of honey bees as they pollinate the flowers that become the fruits, nuts and vegetables we all eat. The many challenges the beekeepers and their bees face en route reveal flaws to our simplified chemically dependent agriculture system. Beekeepers, farmers, scientists, chefs and academics give a broad perspective about the threats to honey bees, what it means to our food security and how we can improve it.
Pre-registration required by Tuesday, August 10th; $10 in advance on our website at putnam.cce.cornell.edu/events or $15 at the door.
