  1. This is a most refreshing approach to a difficult issue. Please remain and fortify your organization. Connect with similar movements which are emerging albeit with less of an inclusive artistic bent and flourish!

  2. BeeWorkers!
    The Pollinating lectures and workshops over these last months have been enriching and wonderfully educational! I am excited about the upcoming exhibit & participating in the pollinator research with the Insight database!
