Disappearance of honeybees explored in documentary

Vanishing of Honeybees to be shown in Harrison Mills this week

Honeybees are an integral part of the food chain, but are disappearing at an alarming rate.

A film that explores that issue, Vanishing of the Bees, will be shown at Harrison Mill Community Hall on Friday, April 27 at 7 p.m. The filming will be shown by ACES (Actively Creating an Exceptional Society) in association with Cinema Politica Fraser Valley.

The documentary examines the alarming disappearance of honeybees and the phenomenon known as Colony Collapse Disorder, which has brought beekeepers to crisis in an industry responsible for pollinating hundreds of fruits and vegetables.

Commercial honeybee operations pollinate crops that make up one out of every three bites of food on our tables.

Doors open at 6:30 p.m. Admission and refreshments are by donation. Door prizes will follow.
