Novato Green Film Series Presents: The Pollinators POSTPONED

In accordance with guidelines from the County of Marin, Marin Health and Human Services (HHS) the film screening  of The Pollinators has been postponed.  

Please join the City of Novato's Sustainability Program and community partners Sustainable Novato, YardSmartMarin and Bee Audacious for this special free screening of The Pollinators.

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.

A panel discussion will follow the screening featuring Suzanne Bontempo from Our Water Our World, Rika Gopinath from YardSmartMarin, and Bonnie Morse from Bee Audacious.

All attendees will be entered into a raffle to win one of ten pollinator plants - just in time for spring planting!

The event is free to attend, but pre-registration is recommended.
