Hive Mindfully: A Documentary Short Film
May 20th is World Bee Day, and this year, we’ve put together a rare look into something extremely special. We invite you to enter the little known world of beekeepers. From across the generations, Comvita co-founder Alan Bougen and bee educator Hilary Kearney team up to rescue a hive that found itself in unwelcome territory. Whether your relationship with bees is knowledgeable, novice or nonexistent, you’ll discover a powerful connection to the wisdom of nature. Go deep into the hive in our new short documentary film, Hive Mindfully:
