[This is the first post from the original first year blog.]
It’s kind of a Postcivilateum idea.
After you’ve come through the several stages of Earth Crisis Awareness (denial, despair, my x equals world saving, ... yadda x3) you arrive at this perceptual clarity where the actual possibilities of doing some actual good – rather than sending a check and singing Kumbaya – are actually apparent. By y’self … can’t save the whales, nor the amphibians, nor the coral reefs by acting locally, even if you think globally.
You can save the bees. Locally. All you need is a back yard and some scrap lumber. It’s a whole movement, ya know? Organic, sustainable, hands-on beekeeping. One voice says that beehives should be more plentiful than televisions. The respected queen goddess of beekeeping says we need hundreds and hundreds of new beekeepers to get involved.
We H. Saps made Colony Collapse Disorder (CCD), weakened the honeybee to susceptibility to varroa mites, and umpty other diseases that are killing them off. We should take some responsibility to fix this. Imean, do you like having the plants that provide your food supply pollinated or not?
Yeah. So I’ve started a whole ‘nother blog to rant all about it. Check out the links and resources and see if ya wanna save some bees too.
And, besides, ... the Goddess wants you to save them.
