Everything's Connected

     Another ted.com talk about the connection of people to their environment.  The implementation of big, industrial agriculture disconnects us from any concept of a healthy, diverse ecosystem.  Bigger is not always better!  We need to think and function in a state of harmonious, environmental balance.
     Christy Hemenway, the founder of Goldstar Honeybees (natural, chemical free top bar hives) is working towards reintegration of small scale diversified farms and honeybees.  She speaks of the connection between bees and our food, our health and our planet.



     I strongly believe that this small scale diversified farming philosophy emphasizing local control should be applied to all industries from logging to high tech.  It is only with local control that you have a long term social and environmental vested interest.  "Think globally, act locally."
