The authors of Keeping Bees and Making Honey share compelling tales from the front line of urban beekeeping
Beekeeping, once seen as an old-fashioned country pursuit, is increasingly attracting young metropolitan professionals, and new hives are springing up all over urban areas. Whether one is attracted to beekeeping for the honey, as a way to combat the threats that honeybee colonies face today, or simply to reconnect with nature, this is a useful and comprehensive guide to the subject. This book introduces readers to the school teachers, inner-city youngsters, finance professionals, and budding entrepreneurs who are at the forefront of this exciting new movement. It provides extensive, practical information for the novice urban beekeeper, including tips on getting started and a month-by-month job guide. It also suggests creative ways to help bees without keeping a hive. Packed with invaluable advice on how to understand and support these extraordinary creatures, this book will inspire readers to join the new urban revolution.
