Bees and Beekeeping (Paperback)

£8.99
Pre-order for despatch on publication.

Synopsis

Bees existed long before human beings, but our future is perhaps more reliant upon them than any other species. They pollinate 80 per cent of the world's crops and plants, but how much do we really know about them? Small, clever and mysterious, the honeybee in particular has long been celebrated in human culture as a sacred insect, a symbol of the sun, bridging the gap between our world and the next. They are expert communicators, skilled aviators and natural alchemists, turning fresh nectar into sweet, golden honey. They are also in trouble and need our help. This beautifully illustrated guide explores the honeybee's historic relationship with humans, the basics of beekeeping, and how we can help save the bees' dwindling population.

Tiffany Francis-Baker is a nature writer, artist and environmentalist from the South Downs, Hampshire. Before going freelance, she worked as Creative Developer at Butser Ancient Farm, where she took a beginners' course in beekeeping and developed an interest in sustainable living. She has written three books, including British Goats for Shire in 2019. Visit the author at www.tiffanyfrancis.com
