EatWell Pod is excited to be in conversation with California Master Beekeeper Program manager (CAMBP) Wendy Mather, Bruin Beekeepers, and the jane b semel HCI community garden stewards for an inspiring review on the people-pollinator connection.
We’ll explore how pollinators, especially bees, are valuable contributors to our diverse food systems, and overall human and planetary health. Wendy Mather will share the 4Ps that put bees in peril, and outline proactive, healthy protocols we can all implement to support healthy bees. Bruin Beekeepers will share progress and lessons learned in bringing bees to campus and building programs to connect our community to them. We look forward to a rich discussion on the reciprocal relationship between healthy honey bees and humans.
