More Than Honey: Free Documentary Screening and Panel Discussion
Mon, 30 January 2017, 4:00 PM – 6:00 PM MST
Join us for a celebration of global awareness and biodiversity at MacEwan University.
As part of Global Awareness Week (Jan. 30th until Feb. 3rd) the MacEwan Office of Sustainability will screen the documentary “More than Honey” by Markus Imhoof. Portraying small family beekeepers as well as industrialized honey farms around the world, the film takes a much-needed global perspective, depicting the impacts of colony collapse disorder and possible solutions.
The documentary will be followed by a panel discussion to discover the role bees play in revitalizing the local urban landscape. We will answer questions from the audience and learn about what non-beekeeping individuals may do to promote biodiversity.
Joining us to share their experiences are Keith Scott (Coordinator of Community Standards at the City of Edmonton), Craig Toth (President of the Edmonton and District Beekeepers Association) and Dustin Bajer (Teacher, Permaculture Designer and self-described network nerd). Troy Donovan, MacEwan's resident beekeeper, will moderate the panel and present the urban beekeeping project on campus.
Every attendee entered for a chance to win a jar of first harvest MacEwan Honey + Free popcorn will be served. Don't miss!
