PROGRAM: “The Importance of Honey Bees”
Cindy Hodges, Hodges Honey

Just how important are honeybees to the human diet? Bees serve as agents of cross pollination, and many plants are entirely dependent on bees for their reproduction. These bees pollinate 80 percent of our flowering crops, which constitute one-third of everything we eat. Cindy Hodges will tell us about the role honeybees play in pollinating all the food we eat and how each worker bee has a role that ensures survival of the colony. Her passion is exploring the art of suburban beekeeping.

Cindy is a native of Atlanta and a graduate of Emory University. She is involved in volunteer work with The Assistance League of Atlanta as well as with The Friends of the Dunwoody Library. She and her husband own and operate “Hodges Honey” apiaries located in Dunwoody and Decatur. She maintains them at Brook Run Park. Cindy has many awards from honey contests and is on the Board of Directors of the Metro Atlanta and Georgia Beekeepers’ Associations.

For man, autumn is a time of harvest, of gathering together.  For nature, it is a time of sowing, of scattering abroad.  ~Edwin Way Teale

Bittersweet October.  The mellow, messy, leaf-kicking, perfect pause between the opposing miseries of summer and winter.  ~Carol Bishop Hipps
