The Future of Food: Why We Need Urban Bee Geeks

Jocelyn Crocker speaks at Smithsonian magazine's 2015 Future Is Here Festival (22:20)

Jocelyn Crocker (BSc, MEd) is an instructor with the department of Biological Sciences Technology at the Northern Alberta Institute of Technology (NAIT) in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. Prior to taking a beekeeping certification course in January 2014, Jocelyn knew almost nothing about bees except that she liked to eat their vomit on toast for breakfast. Nowadays, Jocelyn regularly gets buzzed in her backyard apiary with her husband and young children.
