Dyck Arboretum of the Plains • 177 W. Hickory • Hesston, KS • Map
Bee population collapse is a threat to our $14 billion food industry. Honeybees pollinate 80 percent of our flowering crops that constitute one-third of everything we eat. Sustainable farmer and beekeeper, Deborah McSweeney, has spent years beekeeping and researching bee population collapse which is formally identified as Colony Collapse Disorder (CCD). Hear about the probable causes of CCD and how her native habitat restoration and sustainable farming techniques are in sync with healthy native bee and honeybee populations.
