Vanishing of the Bees Screening: Fundraiser for Haiti

Partners of the Americas is screening the new documentary film Vanishing of the Bees on March 17 in Washington, DC, as a fundraiser for the beekeepers in Haiti. This is a captivating and educational new documentary about Colony Collapse Disorder. See below to view the trailer, or visit vanishingbees.com

Although the film is not about the FTF Program, one of our beekeeping volunteers, Dennis van Engelsdorp, is interviewed in the film and we plan to show previously unreleased footage of him working with the bees in Haiti. We will also have copies of the film and Haitian honey and jam for sale. The screening is free; proceeds from the products will benefit the beekeepers who collaborate with our Farmer to Farmer Program in Haiti.

We hope you can attend! Please RSVP to bees@partners.net.
