There was a blog in the NYTimes about how the honey bee population in the United States is collapsing. Â They proposed an interesting solution, take land out of production and let it be used for native bee habitat reestablishment. Â Perhaps we could build a native bee habitat into the Green Dorm? Â A Bee Laboratory?
