It was in Spring of 2011, in Napa, CA, that Alisha M. Forrester Scott first began to notice that bees were dying. In fact, it was easy to notice, because different types of bees would land and die right in front of her eyes. After several of these occurrences, Alisha was disturbed enough to do some online research.
Her research results: There are over 20,000 types of bees worldwide. 1/3 of the planet’s bees have been decimated. The relevant factors in the mass decline of global Honey bee populations include: mites, bacterial disease, human chemical usage, and Colony Collapse Disorder.
It was at that moment of research and awareness that Alisha’s life positively changed.
For Planet. For People. For Purpose.
In the summer of 2012, and with the help and encouragement of Spencer Beckert, Donald (“Don Bee”) Hughes, Forest Stearns, Pedro Reyes, Humphrey Angeles, Kiana Prema, Rock Martinez, and Brandon Jackson, Pollinator Support Movement (PSM) was founded in Oakland, CA, by Alisha M. Forrester Scott (“Alisha Bee”).
“Education is important. And, when coupled with action, will create change. Learning and practicing are great habits, and you are invited to join a growing global community of those who enjoy doing both. If you hover over the “Get Involved” page you will see additional options. Nice having you here online, and we hope to meet you out in the real world.” +Alisha Bee, Founder, Pollinator Support Movement
