    Guest: Noelle Meade-Izzi

    in Culture

    This is a replay of our show with Noelle Meade-Izzi that originally aired on April 4, 2014.  Noelle is an entrepreneur, philanthropist, author, speaker, award-winning graphic designer and renowned Natu-journalist. Her book, The Hummingbird That Answered My Heart’s Calling, is a testament to the power of nature and its ability to teach, heal, and re-connect humans to their true human nature.  This gift book is filled with over 40 full-color photographs and a custom designed book cover and interior pages. To her delight, a segment on her experience with Artemis, the hummingbird, was featured in the United States Humane Society (USHS) publication, “All Animals.”  But Noelle’s commitment to nature goes well beyond her work as a Natu-journalist. She is leading a crusade to recognize and protect the four POWER POLLINATORS ---bees, birds, butterflies and bats.  As the Pollinator Queen, she is a special advocate for the pollinators, offering advice on how to build a hummingbird-friendly backyard habitant, ways to “give back” to the bee nation, methods for protecting and supporting these essential creatures that are critical to our food chain.  Noelle’s immediate focus is the bee population which has been decimated by a mysterious die-off not fully identified by scientists. Her goal is to help people see bees for the valued partners they are: harmonious, integrated, unified creatures working tirelessly for the greater good. She unceasingly works to educate as many adults and children as possible, using her company, Beenevolent® as a tool for funding more research; to serve and give back. Noelle perceives the loss of any aspect of nature a spiritual loss as well as a natural one. She spreads her message by Spiritual Pollination.
