Wild Wisdom

Green Renaissance

“If you spend a long time with any species in the wild, you are encountering the species as they truly are. I describe it as wild wisdom.” – Jenny Cullinan Jenny dedicates all of her time to studying and learning from bees in the wild. She believes that we need to fundamentally change how we interact with bees, from housing and feeding, to moving them from one area to another to pollinate our crops. Let’s let the wild bees show us how.
