Leo Genovese – Plight of the Humble Bee

Live in performance at the Newton Piano Summit, a Waban Improvement Society Project with support from LexMedia, Lexington Community Media Center

Leo Genovese – Piano/Composer

Bees are the canary in the coal mine, showing us that the toxic way we grow our food isn’t working. Bees pollinate around 75% of food crops, including fruits, nuts, and vegetables. Without bees, we would run short of many of the food crops we rely on. There are many organizations working to save bees from mass extinction including:

Natural Resources Defense Council nrdc.org/save-bees
