Have you thought about taking up beekeeping, but are put off by the expensive equipment you were told to buy, or stories of honeybee colonies collapsing?

If so, then low-cost, low-impact, chemical-free, 'natural beekeeping' may be exactly what you are looking for.

Phil Chandler suggests more natural ways in which we can renew and develop our relationship with the honeybee.

About Phil Chandler

I discovered beekeeping as a result of my involvement with the anti-GM campaigns of the 1990s. Since then, bees have come under increasing threat from agricultural pesticides and from what many regard as inappropriate treatments with synthetic medications, resulting in widespread 'disappearances'.

In 2007, I wrote The Barefoot Beekeeper - my vision of what is wrong and what needs to change in our attitude and approach to bees. Since then, bees and beekeeping have occupied a great deal of my time and energy, none of which I consider wasted.

I hope my writing will inspire you to take up 'natural beekeeping'.

This is a handy little book to have when others ask you why you in the world you would want to keep bees. Chandler provides an excellent overview of why we need to change how we keep bees and why we should keep them. It's not an instruction book for beekeeping, but does provide a few pointers.

This short little book focuses on natural bee-keeping, but it holds a few pointers worth keeping in mind for anyone interested in investigating bee-keeping further.

It's nice to come across educational books that are brief and to the point.
