Thousands of semi-trailers crisscross the country in the dead of night delivering goods through the darkness to stores, warehouses and factories nationwide. But some of them carry an unsuspected and highly unusual cargo. Honey bees. Tens of billions of them are transported back and forth from one end of the United States to the other in a unique annual migration that’s indispensable to the feeding of America.
One out of every three bites we eat, the growth of almost all our fruits, nuts and vegetables, would be impossible without pollination from bees. The film features farmers, scientists, chefs, economists and academics, and provides a broad perspective about the threats to honey bees and what it means to our food security.
All attendees will be entered into a raffle to win one of ten pollinator plants - just in time for spring planting!
