Save the Bees, Save the Planet: Community Supported Pollination

SPEAKER:

SUMMARY: 

Honey bees are responsible for pollinating just over a third of the world’s food supply, but honey bee populations have been declining for decades. The innovative Beepods beekeeping system improves bee populations and helps the environment.

Beepods mission is to find new and creative ways to increase honey bee populations and pollination initiatives through awareness, education, and advocacy. They are ushering in a new era of beekeeping that is better for the bees and easier for the beekeepers.

SPEAKER BIO:

Charlie “CharBee” Koenen, Founder of Beepods.com, is a “Beevangelist” spreading the Buzz about bees and his new beekeeping system called Beepods.

Community Supported Pollination is a project to protect pollinators and advocate for the changes necessary to help them thrive again worldwide.
