On July 23rd Portland Rising Tide kicked off our series of skill shares and social events. This event focused on the current state of honeybees as well as basic info on beekeeping. We discussed the use of honeybees in industrial agriculture, alternative approaches to bees and pollination and the connection of these issues to a variety of environmental and social issues.
The goal of these events is to provide an opportunity for community building, for connections to be made between interested individuals and Rising Tide members, for people to learn about getting involved with Rising Tide and to empower individuals with knowledge and skills. This grassroots empowerment is a critical and important part of addressing the root causes of climate change and altering the way we relate to one and other as well as to the environment.
