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.

    Although the information covered is interesting, it is a little too short. Although, it gives a good argument for keeping bees the way they want to be kept. I am keeping bees in top bar hives for the bees health, as apposed to langstroth for their excessive loads of honey.

    Informative. We need to consider alternative methods to beekeeping. When there are no more honeybees, there will not be anymore farms. Plants need those bees to pollinate their crops. Whether or not larger companies that use chemically altered plants or not, I doubt that any plants can survive and reproduce without pollination. Be kind and be aware.

    This is a great (though brief) introduction to natural bee keeping. It has raised my interest significantly in going all natural... Thanks for the wonderful, free information!
