Heard the buzz? Beekeeping is back! Neighborhoods across the country have embraced it as a source of sustainable food and environmental goodness.

Fascinating to observe, bees serve a crucial role in the pollination of more than a third of the foods we enjoy, and produce honey, beeswax and more. English examines what you need to know before purchasing your first package of bees. She explores hive hierarch; hive housing, location and feeding requirements; obtaining and installing honeybees; and how to extract honey. You'll also find mouthwatering honey-based recipes, profiles of beekeepers, and hive health and wellness information.
