This beautiful bee landed on my hand the other day while I was sitting by the Willamette river. It sat there for a good 2-3 minutes before taking flight. Tragically, just after take off it veered toward left and then crashed into the river. I watched as it struggled to free itself out of my reach.
With all the news in the last few years about bee die offs, I couldn’t help but think this was one of those warning bells. Then today I hear that 25,000 bumblebees died in Wilsonville, OR
Conventional wisdom and science tells us to eat out fruits and veggies. Well, all the flower based edibles require pollination to exist and bees do the vast majority of it.
This is serious folks. We can’t keep poisoning our environment. Of the 88,000 chemicals being used in the US today, the FDA hasn’t only done testing on less than 300! We leave the testing up to the companies that create them. Crazy!
