HELPING BEES SING THE SONG OF INCREASE
Song of Increase, like my life, is all about bees. I show people how to gather and re-home swarms, rescue downed tree hives, help friends get started with bees, and I speak around the country at bee, nature, agricultural conferences, and book stores. My bee work has even taken me to Dominican Republic where I worked with rural beekeepers. I am immersed in the bee world.
I speak bee. In Song of Increase, I write about my conversations with bees and the experience of building a deep relationship and learning from each other. The Song of Increase book is not a “take all you can from a hive” beekeeping book. It’s about how to interact with bees (and all of Nature) in a respectful manner, how to understand subtle bee behavior and bee culture, and how best to support the colonies entrusted to your care so they thrive in their bee-ness. You will become a better keeper of bees through reading it. I like to think this behavior also makes us better human beings, too, more caring stewards of the world. How wonderful that is!
