Sustainablity Post #2

Bees. Last year there was a problem with the bees in this country, where a large number of hives were dieing out, and no one knew why. Quite apart from that diseases and parasites have been on the rise for some time. Any plan for sustained living by humans on this planet, includes having honey bees.

Two of my friends independently started beekeeping this spring. They both decided to use an ancient type of hive (from Greece around 1000 years ago) called a top bar hive, and more organic methods rather than the more commercial, chemical, and poison laden methods. They pointed me to more information at http://biobees.com and http://bushfarms.com

I hope that by next spring I can have a top bar hive built and get myself some bees.
