The Pollinators - Documentary (Screening)

The Pollinnators Film.jpg

The Pollinators 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. 

We will talk to farmers, scientist, chefs, economists and academics along the way to give a broad perspective about the threats to honey bees and what it means to our food security.

The Pollinators
Date: Tuesday, September 17, 2019 Time: 6:30PM

Bee Jamboree!

City of Ventura Public Art Program    June 18, 2018

Hello!

I am writing to you on behalf of the City of Ventura’s Public Art Program.  We are putting together an event called the Bee Jamboree at the Barranca Vista Imagination Center on Wednesday, August 15, 2018, from 4-6:30 pm. This event will be hosted in celebration of our City’s newest installation of public art entitled Bee Cause by artist MB Hanrahan in collaboration with many artists and creative community members.  This work was inspired by the plight of the North American Honey Bee and to create awareness about the importance of bees to our planet. MB has created a garden made from painted repurposed donated hubcaps on a metal mesh with bee sculptures among flower patches. The installation fits beautifully into the Barranca Vista Center, which is the ‘hub’ of creative, enriching, educational, and physical activities for young and old on the east end of Ventura. So much happens here, it’s a hive of activity. Bee Cause will strengthen Ventura’s livability by connecting symbolic cooperation of bees with cooperation among humans.

We hope to create a celebration that recognizes the art and educates the community about the importance of bees, how we can support them, and what they do for our community.  

We are seeking interested and various bee-friendly vendors such as beekeepers, honey soirees, bees wax candlemakers, bee friendly garden experts, or/and bee educators. We’d like to offer the community honey tasting, garden demonstrations, opportunity to see a live beehive, and anything else bee related. If you have an interest or if you know of someone who is interested in setting up a booth and sharing your passion and  bee expertise, please fill out the attached Participation Form and contact me as soon as possible.

Thank you for your consideration!

Kindly,

Tobie Roach

Central Park in downtown Fillmore, CA
Saturday, June 10, 2017  9AM-5PM

Every year LACBA member beekeepers hop aboard the Fillmore and Western Railway and ride the rails from the Honey Harvest Festival over to Bennett's Honey Farm.  Beekeepers love talking about "BEES" and sharing their beekeeping adventures and knowledge with the general public. The California Honey Harvest Festival is one of our most entertaining and rewarding club events.
