During the course of evolution, pollinators and plants have been involved in a seductive relationship that has been instrumental in creating the luxuriant world we live in today. Honeybees are the most productive of the pollinators, and yet their well-being is threatened by contemporary influences. Chris and Grai share their insights into the complex world of the honeybee and their health in our contemporary society. The winter weekend workshops, to start hives in spring, are held each year in Rosendale and Brooklyn.
Many of our food plants like blueberries and tomatoes are efficiently pollinated by native bees, such as social bumble bees and solitary mason bees. Butterflies, flies and beetles also act as pollinators. Francis will discuss how to attract native pollinators by creating gardens of native plants that support them throughout their life cycle.
Francis holds degrees in Biology and Zoology and has done extensive research on insects that feed on plants. He has a lifelong interest in studying flora of various areas, and now focuses on Catskill Mountain plants. By tragic necessity, Joel Goldstein became a lay expert in traumatic brain injury after his teenage son suffered severe TBI in an auto accident in In his talk, Joel will share the strategies his family used to manage and cope with the consequences of ongoing care-giving while preserving their balance, optimism, resilience and zest for life.
The talk will be followed by a lively question and answer session and book signing.
It offers profound insights into what survivors and their families must face. Considering every possibility in their search for remedies to their son Bart's catastrophic injuries, the Goldsteins explored several promising alternatives, including craniosacral, hyperbaric oxygen, sensory learning, and vision restoration therapies.
Bart's remarkable recovery resulted from a combination of conventional medicine and alternative and emerging therapies. Persons struggling with any grave medical condition will find the book, and Joel's talks, insightful, inspiring and useful. His message, full of humor and practical techniques on navigating life's toughest challenges, offers a thoughtful hand-drawn map for the journey which, inevitably, so many of us must travel. Joel has written for Exceptional Parent Magazine, Brainline.
Together they have left no stone unturned searching for remedies, both conventional and alternative, to Bart's grave injuries.get link
