TED Talk – Why Bugs Matter

Our own Charlotte Wiggins presents a TEDx Talk on why bugs matter…

Charlotte Ekker Wiggins is a lifelong gardener, but it was not until she started to keep honeybees in her garden that she began to understand the scope of the pollinators, down to honeybees providing 1/3 of the world’s food supply. She provided the audience with tips everyone can do now to ensure the future of bees and our food supply as we know it. Charlotte Wiggins is a master gardener and representative and contributing author of Missouri’s Master Pollinator Steward program – which is the first program in the U.S. designed to explain the role pollinators play in our food chain. Wiggins is a University of Missouri advanced master gardener and serves on the Missouri State Beekeepers Association. She retired from careers with the U.S. Forest Service and U.S. Navy, and currently lectures on how to plant for pollinators. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at https://www.ted.com/tedx
