On July 16th, from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. (US Pacific time), YourGardenShow.com is presenting Bee-a-thon 2011, the first-ever, free online "town hall" event broadcasting live to a worldwide audience to shed light on the plight of our disappearing bee populations. Bees and pollinators are responsible for one in every three bites of food and contribute billions of dollars to global economies, so their dwindling numbers affect everyone.
The Bee-a-thon live online event brings together top bee experts and environmental players with backgrounds in science, activism, conservation, arts and education who will be interacting with viewers via a user-friendly live chat area and providing inspiring ways to help the bees this summer. People will be tuning in to the event for anywhere between 12 minutes or 12 hours, from living rooms, gardens, mobile devices and “backyard bee parties.”
