Commercial honeybee operations pollinate crops that make up one out of every three bites of food on our tables. This documentary about Colony Collapse Disorder examines the alarming disappearance of honeybees and the greater meaning it holds about the relationship between mankind and mother earth.

A Q & A session with a local NJ beekeeper after the screening will give you the opportunity to find out more about the challenges of setting up a local apiary, and the current ‘hot topics’ in the beekeeping world.  

1:00 pm   A honey-themed vegetarian/non-vegetarian lunch is available for $10, before the film*
1:30pm   Free Film Screening
*Please 
call Amanda at 908-432-2269 to request vegan option.
