Screening of The Pollinators
185 Townsend Ave.
Join us for a public screening of The Pollinators at Harbor Theater in Boothbay Harbor on Thursday, February 27 at 6 p.m. (Doors open at 5 p.m.) Concessions will be available prior to the screening.
Per director Peter Nelson, The Pollinators is “a cinematic journey around the United States following migratory beekeepers and their truckloads of honey bees as they pollinate the flowers that become the fruits, nuts and vegetables we all eat.” This film focuses not only on these vital pollinators, but also on the beekeepers, farmers, chefs, and academics who interact with them, offering the audience a broader perspective about honey bees’ importance and the threats to both their survival and our food security.
As a special addition to the evening, CMBG’s CFO/COO and Master Beekeeper, Erin MacGregor-Forbes, will give a brief introduction prior to the film—along with a little buzz about our next season’s new learning apiary. Erin MacGregor-Forbes is former Chairman of the Eastern Apicultural Society, the largest noncommercial beekeeping organization in the United States.
