Did you know that one out of every three bites of food you take requires pollination?

Bees are one of the most commonly thought of pollinators, hence the vexing issue of why bees around the world are facing extinction is an important question that needs to be explored. Oscar-nominated director Markus Imhoof tackles the global phenomenon of the disappearing bees from California to Switzerland and China to Australia in the film More Than Honey. 


For those 21 and over, Charm City Meadworks will be providing a tasting of mead starting at 6 pm.

Mead is an alcoholic beverage created by fermenting honey with water, and yeast. Charm City Meadworks is a Baltimore based operation established in 2014. Co-owners James and Andrew began the meadery with the hopes of showing the world that the oldest alcoholic beverage in history is still relevant and delicious.
