From the Ted Talk by Dennis vanEngelsdorp: A plea for bees

Unscramble the Blue Letters

Now, not all of us have meadows, or lnaws that we can convert, and so you can always, of course, grow a madeow in a pot. Bees apparently, can be the gateway to, you know, other things. So I'm not saying that you should plant a meadow of pot, but a pot in a meadow. But you can also have this great cinmoutmy of city or building-top beekeepers, these beekeepers that live — This is in pairs where these beekeepers live. And everyone should open a beehive, because it is the most amazing, incredible thing. And if we want to cure ourselves of NDD, or nutrae Deficit Disorder, I think this is a great way of doing it. Get a beehive and grow a meadow, and watch that life come back into your life. And so with that, I think that what we can do, if we do this, we can make sure that our ftruue — our more perfect future — includes beekeepers and it includes bees and it includes those meadows. And that journey — that journey of transformation that occurs as you grow your meadow and as you keep your bees or you watch those native bees there — is an exemlrtey exnctiig one. And I hope that you experience it and I hope you tell me about it one day. So thank you very much for being here. Thank you very much.

Now, not all of us have meadows, or lawns that we can convert, and so you can always, of course, grow a meadow in a pot. Bees apparently, can be the gateway to, you know, other things. So I'm not saying that you should plant a meadow of pot, but a pot in a meadow. But you can also have this great community of city or building-top beekeepers, these beekeepers that live — This is in Paris where these beekeepers live. And everyone should open a beehive, because it is the most amazing, incredible thing. And if we want to cure ourselves of NDD, or Nature Deficit Disorder, I think this is a great way of doing it. Get a beehive and grow a meadow, and watch that life come back into your life. And so with that, I think that what we can do, if we do this, we can make sure that our future — our more perfect future — includes beekeepers and it includes bees and it includes those meadows. And that journey — that journey of transformation that occurs as you grow your meadow and as you keep your bees or you watch those native bees there — is an extremely exciting one. And I hope that you experience it and I hope you tell me about it one day. So thank you very much for being here. Thank you very much.
