Want to be a beekeeper? Here's how.
Many thanks to everyone who has written in about Tuesday's urban beekeeping story asking about bees, beekeeping and honey.
If you are interested in getting started as a beekeeper, here are a few resources:
- The Backwards Beekeepers' blog
- Kirk Anderson's website
- Beekeeping resources, including where to get supplies and academic sources
Good luck harvesting bees and discovering the magic of your very own honey.
