They say it takes a village to raise a child.
Or 80,000 honeybees to raise a village.
Or a “hive mind” to solve the bee crisis.
You, my intrepid readers and supporters, are that Hive Mind. Many acting in one accord for the good of all.
Thank you friends, for your incredible generosity and support of Think Like a Bee this season. Some gave a little, A few gave a lot, but all gave some. I am humbled and deeply grateful. We have raised $2,500 to date from you, our pollinator community and beehive of support! Wahoo!
Think Like A Bee continues to seek how to act on behalf of honeybee and native bee issues—and since bees are “the canaries in the mine” for humans, it benefits you too!
For 2019, Think Like a Bee has identified a clean and healthy watershed (soil, water and air) for bees, pollinators, plants, critters and humans alike. Continuous habitat corridors around our city/town and forage availability all through the season are also critical.
To these ends we will initiate our #feedpollinators project with the City of Albuquerque in 2019 as well as our Rio Grande Watershed documentary, which will put students on the ground with land based communities —learning the issues as they interview. Look for the documentary trailer in 2019! It will come about thanks to what you have given financially!
May we continue to stick together and work for the commons in this new year.
I see many waking up from the hubris of profit driven greed, celebrity status, a fossil fuel economy and entitlement. May this precious gem of our blue green planet daily inspire us to value the ordinary sacred acts of many and the whole of our diverse biotic community. We have been gifted this incredible life for only a minute in the larger arc of time.
We have the world to live in on the condition that we will take good care of it. And to take good care of it, we have to know it. And to know it and to be willing to take care of it, we have to love it.Wendell Berry (https://www.brainyquote.com/quotes/wendell_berry_596495)
Happy New Year!
