Top bar hives can be located anywhere bees have access to forage, and they are ideally suited to the urban environment. Rooted in understanding and working with bees' natural systems, as opposed to trying to subvert them, top bar hives feature:
Simplicity, sustainability and cost-effectiveness
Increased safety due to less heavy lifting and hive manipulation
Chemical-free colonies and healthy hives.
Emphasizing the intimate connection between our food systems, bees and the wellbeing of the planet, The Thinking Beekeeper will appeal to the new breed of beekeeper that is less invested in maximizing honey yield at any cost, and more focused on ensuring the viability of the bee population now and in the coming years.
To help bring you the very best inspiration and information about greener, more sustainable lifestyles, Mother Earth News is recommending select New Society Publishers books to its readers. This book is one of them. Book jacket.
