Show cover of The Barefoot Beekeeper

The Barefoot Beekeeper

Phil Chandler, teacher and author of 'The Barefoot Beekeeper', talks about 'balanced beekeeping' and explains why he believes we need to change both the way we grow our food and the way we work with honeybees if we want them - and ourselves - to survive and thrive. Beekeeping has been all about honey production. Now we need to learn to value bees for their own sake - for their part in nature as pollinators of many plant species, both wild and cultivated. The Barefoot Beekeeper is available in print or as an ebook from www.biobees.com
