Honeybees evoke spring, and that image is so powerful right now that Thursday’s free screening of Vanishing of the Bees has been moved to the Bickford Theatre to accommodate the crowd.
Showtime is 6:30 pm, at 6 Normandy Heights Road in Morris Township. Here’s a trailer from the documentary, about honeybees as our canaries-in-the-coal mine for environmental health.
Grow It Green also will offer a free “Introduction to Natural Bee Keeping” on Feb. 1o at the Dodge Foundation, at 14 Maple Ave. in Morristown. Grow It Green’s Farmer Tammy Toad Ryan will give the demonstration.
And if this talk really grabs you, you might want to apply to become Grow It Green’s full-time farm manager. You must like kids, bugs and weather, and be able to lift 50 pounds with your bare hands, according to the job description.
Tammy will be staying on, but with other duties, say the Grow It Green folks.
