As a small bee-keeping family, I was excited to receive this book and peruse its contents. I had been thinking for a long while that we needed to plant some bee friendly plants around our hives. This book was a great resource for helping me to know where to begin in this process.
I was also thrilled that books like these are making known the fact that we need to be aware of the declining bee population due to pesticides, disease, and lack of forage. We need to do our part to save these hard workers, or our way of life will swiftly decline! More than 30 percent of our food crops rely on pollination by bees to produce their fruits and seeds and we need to make sure that this pollination continues.
Overall, the book was a great resource. I’d recommend it if you already have bees, or are wanting to attract them to your area. We can all do our part to help keep the chain of plant pollination strong, AND have a beautiful landscape surrounding our lives.
