Beevangalist Doug Purdies is a great friend to Cornersmith. His local business The Urban Bee Hive has been keeping us in honey since we opened our doors. We are very excited about the publication of his revised and expanded reissue of Backyard Bees.
This is a complete guide to bees, whether you are an experienced beekeeper, just starting out, thinking about having a hive or are committed to being a bee ally. Doug writes from experience as being an urban bee keeper who knows all about the restraints of small spaces and challenges of city ecosystems.
With chapters that cover what goes on in a hive and how honey is made, bee friendly gardens, seasonal beehive management and honey rich recipes, Doug shares everything he knows about the world's most important pollinators and what we all can do to save them.
