I just spoke with Tim Bennet of Turtlebee Farms in Byron MI. He is still taking orders for bees. They are Italian bees coming from Georgia. The arrival dates are April 8th or 9th, April 22nd or 23rd (3# packages only) and a tentative order date for May 6th or 7th depending upon whether there are enough orders to fill another date. The prices are 2#-$67, 3#-$79. Marked queens are $3 extra. Here is a link to his website: http://www.turtlebeefarms.com/ There is an order form on the website you can use to place an order. If you have questions Tim's phone number is 810-266-4880.

For Immediate Release Rebecca Gale-Gonzalez (810) 762-0455
Public Invited to Flint River Wild Ones Meeting to Feature Discussion
and Showing of Film Vanishing of the Bees,March 14
The Flint River Chapter of Wild Ones is all a-buzz about pollinators that support humans and the native plants that support them.

The group will host a screening of the documentary Vanishing of the Bees, narrated by Ellen Page. The screening will take place on Monday, March 14 at 6 p.m. in room 1301 of Mott Community College's Regional Technology Center. This event is free and open to the public. Light refreshments will be served. Please RSVP by calling (810) 762-0455.
Vanishing of the Bees is an 86-minute documentary that explores the cultural practices of bee keeping and possible causes of Colony Collapse Disorder (CCD). According to information listed on the film's website, honeybees have been mysteriously disappearing across the planet, literally vanishing from their hives. The CCD phenomenon has brought beekeepers to crisis in an industry responsible for producing apples, broccoli, watermelon, onions, cherries and a hundred other fruits and vegetables. Commercial honeybee operations pollinate crops that make up one out of every three bites of food on our tables. The film also explores the balance of trade in the honey industry.
Vanishing of the Bees follows two commercial beekeepers as they strive to keep their bees healthy and fulfill pollination contracts across the U.S. The film explores the struggles they face as they plead their case on Capital Hill and travel across the Pacific Ocean in the quest to protect their honeybees. The film was produced by Long Live the Queen LLC.
"This film provides a comprehensive view from the perspective of farmers and bee keepers in the food production industries," Rebecca Gale-Gonzalez, Wild Ones President explained. "As part of the discussion following the screening, we will present the findings of the Xerces Society for Invertebrate Conservation, who partnered with bumble bee researchers and found that native bumble bees are also suffering. Xerces provides sound recommendations for helping us deal with this pervasive problem, and first on that list was to provide a diversity of native plants to support pollinators."

Wild Ones is an environmental education and advocacy group that promotes environmentally sound landscaping practices to preserve biodiversity through the preservation, restoration and establishment of native plant communities. For more information about Wild Ones, please call Rebecca Gale-Gonzalez, Mott Community College Marketing Assistant/Web Content Manager, who also serves as the Wild Ones president at (810) 762-0455.

[color=blue]Hello fellow beekeepers, Jim Wither just emails me tonight and said that we are ordering our bees at our February meeting so make sure to bring your checkbook

Jim would like to have a rough ideal of how many bees each of us are ordering of possible so we can figure the discount that we will save. Paying with a check makes it much easier to keep track of the money. But if you want to pay cash that is good too.

We apologize for the rush, but we are trying to make sure we get our bees before they run out, due to the shortage. Thank you for your patiences.

Jim Withers, President

Barb Applebee Secretary
