» New film highlights honeybees’ importance

published on August 4, 2011

SHANNONDALE - The Locavore Project-WV will screen a film detailing the plight of common honeybees later this month at the St. Andrews Mountain Community Center in Shannondale.

Narrated by Ellen Page of "Juno" fame, "Vanishing of the Bees" raises awareness of the bees' fate and their importance to the ecosystem. The film describes the mysterious disappearance of the vital insects.

Crucial to the survival of our natural food sources, honeybees have become tiny victims of chemicals and commercial food production, according to a news release from the Locavore Project-WV.

"More and more backyard beekeepers are popping up in our region to aid the effort in preserving and sustaining bee life. Particularly in the Eastern Panhandle, where a number of small family farms exist and depend on biodiversity for the survival of their crops, beekeeping has become an essential addition to agrarian life," the release stated.

Following the film, Eldon Winston, a local beekeeper and native plant grower, will conduct a question-and-answer session and educate attendees on how to plant a bee-friendly garden, start an apiary and more.

Honey from Eversweet Apiaries of Kearneysville will be available for a tasting as well as for sale, and a honey wine tasting will be conducted by Albert & Arnold's wine shop of Charles Town.

The film will be screened at 2 p.m. Aug. 13. The St. Andrews Mountain Community Center is located at 58 Mission Road, near the road's intersection with W.Va. 9.
