I’m sure many of you have seen the photos or TEDtalks about declining bee populations, but I wanted to share a 15 minute TEDtalk video I just watched.
I love this lecture because it outlines the problems, which are super depressing, as bees could be a mirror of our human colonies… but the talk also offers great solutions at the end that all of us could provide to help the bees stay healthy.
Basically, plant flowers that bees like. Native flowering shrubs are best. And if you’re a farmer, plant natural nitrogen-fixing cover crops like clover and alfalfa, and skip the synthetic nitrogen fertilizers.
