Meet your Host
"I love being a beekeeper.
Working with bees has granted me access
to so much more than fresh from the hive honey.
It has been a passport to connecting with a global community of like minded individuals
who share a similar passion for bees
and environmental issues.
I created this show to highlight the lives and stories of this community in a way that is informative and entertaining.
I hope that you enjoy listening as
much as I enjoy creating it!"
Today’s guest is a beekeeper, a cinematographer, and director of The Pollinators. His work on this film has earned numerous film festival awards including the Rob Stewart Eco Warrior Award, the Gaia Prize for Environmental Film Making, the Best Cinematography Feature Documentary, and more. I was fortunate to be connected with him through Meredith May, author of the Honey Bus. I was also very lucky to be granted access to view the film prior to the national day of screening which takes place on November 6th. I highly recommend this film not just for beekeepers, but for anyone who likes to eat food. The Pollinators highlights the major and the lesser seen flaws in our agricultural system, and how the migratory beekeepers are responding to the ongoing changes and challenges in order to keep our nation's crops pollinated. This was an amazing interview and I am really beelighted to introduce our guest, Peter Nelson.
