WHEN:  Sunday, August 7, 2011 at 6 pm

WHERE:  The Pink Door   1919 Post Allley, Seattle, WA 98101  206.443.3241

WHY:  “Our food chain is in peril as the honeybees are perishing,” said Jackie Roberts, owner of The Pink Door. “We started this past spring with one hive in our backyard. The colony multiplied very rapidly and formed a ‘swarm’ and right before our eyes  six thousand flew bees flew onto a branch 30 feet high in our neighbor’s  back yard. It was quite thrilling. Our hope in showing this documentary, is to help educate and raise awareness about the dire situation of the honeybee and what we can all do about it as urban dwellers. Many people do not realize that without the honeybee we would not be able to enjoy many of the foods we eat.  Our front yard vegetable garden is lushly thriving thanks in great part to our phenomenal friends, the honeybees.”

DONATION:        $5.00 to attend the viewing and join the conversation. The Pink Door will be serving complimentary antipasti.
