University Farm’s Anna Locci, Chris Bond discuss harsh winter’s effect on honeybees, food supply

Brutal winter delivers deadly blow to honeybee population we count on to pollinate our food supply

WEWS: Chris Bond, University Farm horticulturist, and Anna Locci, director of the University Farm, discussed the effect of the harsh winter on honeybees and our food supply. “If you took out all the food from the grocery store that honeybees pollinate, then the store would be more than half empty of the food we rely on for nutrition,” said Locci.
