Lori Weidenhammer: The Bee Messenger

I sat down by Deer Lake with Lori Weidenhammer, artist and beekeeper, to talk about her deep interest in pollinators.  We found a sun dappled location ideal for bees and conversations about them.  My interview with Lori was fascinating and quite extensive.  I’m including a selection of short clips now and hope to make the full interview available soon.
