Save the Bees

Chances are that you have heard something about the bees' plight and the ominous phenomenon of Colony Collapse Disorder (CCD).

Grappling with the strange phenomenon of colony collapse disorder—the baffling disappearance of all bees from a hive that is often blamed for the honeybee’s increasingly endangered status—New York City’s hobbyist beekeeping communities have gone green. Lisa Jean Moore and Mary Kosut introduce beekeepers of all stripes: the careful cultivators of ‘scientific’ beekeeping groups, the passionately political radical ‘backwards’ beekeepers who hope to return the species to its most natural state, and DIY-influenced ‘hipster’ beekeepers who share a holistic approach to lowering their environmental impact. Though their approaches may differ, these beekeepers agree on one thing: to save the bee is to save our planet.
