Honeybees—a keystone species vital to sustaining our ecosystem—are mysteriously disappearing across the planet. On Earth Day, April 22, 2011 join usfor Miami’s first screening of ‘The Vanishing of the Bees’ and get inspired with an eye opening evening where food & film intertwine both on-screen & off-screen. Directly experience how crucial honeybees are in our food supply through a delightful & delicious arrangement of Tapas, Beverages & Desserts consisting of foods that would no longer be available, or would be very difficult to find, if our honeybees ceased to exist.
Savor honeybee foods and get inspired to Bee the Change You Want to See in the World.

About The Chef:
Chef Jonathan comes from an Italian food-worshipping family. He is wild about food & nature, which is a perfect combination for an Earth Day culinary experience. He studied at the Natural Gourmet Institute for Health and Culinary Arts in 2007 and since then has worked at many farm-to-table & vegan restaurants around the country. He is formerly of Pure Food & Wine in N.Y, and Sublime and Om Garden in South Florida.
Chef Jonathan spent a season learning how to grow food in the farms of Homestead, Florida and says, “To grow food is the most amazing and empowering thing a person can do to become more in touch with Mother Nature, the real top chef.” Chef Jonathan will be serving up locally-harvested, organic honeybee-inspired gourmet delights. Sweet pleasure for your palate that you won’t want to miss.
About The Film:
From filmmakers George Langworthy and Maryam Heinen, “Vanishing of the Bees” follows commercial beekeepers David Hackenberg and David Mendes as they strive to keep their bees healthy and fulfill pollination contracts across the U.S. The film explores the struggles they face as the two friends plead their case in Washington, D.C. and travel across the world in the quest to protect their honeybees. Film running time is 90 minutes.
A percentage of the profits of this Earth Day Event will go to the Save The Honeybee Foundation.
