"Vanishing of the Bees", Marin County Documentary Film Premier
Open Secret Bookstore in San Rafael, California was the site of the Marin County premier showing of the just-released documentary film "Vanishing of the Bees" (www.vanishingbees.org)
In attendance for the first public showing were author and teacher Marguerite Rigoglioso, PhD, interviewed in the film, as well as author and activist China Galland. The audience consisted of beekeepers, bee lovers, and just plain interested persons who hoped to learn more about the current state of bees in the world. This film has been compared to "An Inconvenient Truth", and gives extensive background and information about the current and continuing plight of honey bees, CCD (Colony Collapse Disorder), and what is being done around the world to address these issues. A must-see for all. Go to www.vanishingbees.org or write firstname.lastname@example.org to see a copy of the trailer and order you own DVD.
