Oregon Country Fair's Community Village is a collection of booths providing information about social issues.

Tucked away is a booth called Wild Edibles. Here people can learn about natural foliage that can be consumed or used as medicine. There's also a small section dedicated to a vital component to wild edible plants: Bees.

KLCC's Desmond O'Boyle took some time to visit the Fair's only living bee hive and found some women bringing attention to saving the bees.
