Film Screening – More Than Honey

October 15, 2013 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Please join CISA for a special showing of the film More Than Honey, co-presented with Amherst Cinema, that examines the mysterious decline of honeybee colonies around the world in the last 15 years. This will be followed by a panel question and answer session with CISA’s own Local Hero members Dan Conlon of Warm Colors Apiary and Ben Clark of Clarkdale Fruit Farms! Come see this stunning film and hear the panel discussion to learn how bees are impacted locally. Details and tickets here.

Warm Colors maintains 700 to 800 colonies, each averaging 60-70 pounds of honey per year. Dan raises Queens and keeps a Queen yard that can produce 200- 300 Queens annually.  Please visit their website for further information at
