Investigating areas in Northern California, they researched bees, hives, and where the honey on store shelves really comes from. The filmmakers balanced the science of bee health, including mites and pesticides, with the cultural significance of the honeybee. The buzzing bees, views of flowering plants, and all of the luscious, drizzling honey in the film is the perfect way to welcome spring.
Fun and inspiring, it’s a must-see for anyone who loves bees, honey, or even eating. Without pollinators, after all, we wouldn’t have much to eat. “The Quest for Local Honey” plays in BriarPatch’s Community Room on Friday, March 23 at 7:00 p.m.
