Accepting the challenge presented in Mark Winston’s Paradigm is Huge, yet Buffered by available resources. Pennsylvania State Beekeepers Association, (PSBA), is one of the oldest beekeeping associations in the nation. The collaboration beetween PSBA, PA Dept. of Agriculture and Penn State University, (PSU) is recognized and respected nationwide. This Trilogy offers many opportunities for you to assist with regenerating Healthy Environments. Nutritional Deficiencies are a symptom, inflicted by lack of Forage and Agribusiness.
Marla Spivak, Breeder of “Minnesota Hygenic” Queens, xemplar of University of Minnesota, (UMN), is making Huge progress in providing foraging areas for Bees to Detox. Instead of good, clean bee food we have acres of lawns and monocultures (bee deserts) which are treated with a variety of chemicals. Honey bees, wild bees and other pollinators are reduced to feeding on scraps.

Feeding honey bees a natural diet of pollen makes them significantly more resistant to pesticides than feeding them an artificial diet.
“Populations of many bee species are in decline across the world, and poor nutrition is thought to be a major factor causing these declines,” says Christina Grozinger, director of the Center for Pollinator Research at Penn State. “Our studies can help identify plant species and stocks that provide high-quality nutrition for bumble bees and potentially other bee gardens and planting strips.”
If we give the bees what they need, as in nourishment from clean forage, abundant not so long ago, they can heal themselves. Ric Orlando, proprietor of potentially my favorite restaurant in the world, New World Cooking, says it all in his book, We Want Clean Food.
