9780956940469: Farming for the Landless: New perspectives on the cultivation of our honeybee

Devastating honeybee losses have resulted in rallying calls to 'save our bees'. Media interest and a multitude of campaigns have raised public awareness and yet also reinforced popular myths. Concern for bees is high, but what might it mean to consider the conservation of a farmed creature? Informative and thought-provoking, Farming for the Landless travels from the intensive agriculture of Romania to fallow post-war Kosovo, from remote sites in Slovenia and Sweden to the urban sprawl of Paris and London, exploring changes across the European landscape to better understand this critical moment for honeybees, beekeepers and the non-farming landless community we have largely become.

About the Author:

Sarah Waring lives and works in the UK and Italy. She studied Fine Art Photography at the Royal College of Art, lectured at the University of Westminster and University of the Arts and worked as a writer and media publishing editor in London. She has travelled extensively throughout rural Europe where her interests in ecology and agriculture have been brought to life especially via hands-on experience in Austria, Italy, Sweden and Wales.

Review:

"This is an important and timely book relevant for beekeepers, farmers, conservationists and anyone who has an interest in our environment. It should be of considerable interest, too, to lay people, who have become aware of some of the problems bees are facing ... Sarah has tackled a very difficult and emotive subject rationally, giving the reader an enormous amount of information to digest and consider. It is a very readable book, broken up beautifully with lyrical passages describing her time with bees and the varied landscapes through which she travelled." -John Phipps, Beekeepers Quarterly

"Sarah's writing is lively and engaging, with complex beekeeping issues neatly explored on her colourful travels around Europe. Each chapter parachutes the reader into the lives and preoccupations of beekeeping tribes in Europe, illuminating the craft of beekeeping from the inside. These stories have the precision of embedded journalism, animated by the mindfulness of a prose poet. A great Christmas gift for discerning beekeepers!" -Dale Gibson, Apis Consultancy & Bermondsey Street Bees

"I greatly enjoyed reading Farming for the Landless, which is beautifully written and contains some lovely and fascinatingly obscure stories about the lives of beekeepers in different parts of the world. It deserves to be widely read."
Dave Goulson, biologist, conservationist and author of A Buzz in the Meadow, Jonathan Cape

"I can't say that I've ever picked up a beekeeping book as well-researched as Farming for the Landless by Sarah Waring ... If you're concerned about the health and survival of honeybees, then this book is likely one of the most informative books you will find. Even if you never plan on keeping bees yourself, the information in this book will alter the way that you look at bees and open your eyes to the huge problems that the tiny honeybee is facing. Farming for the Landless is an excellent book to add to your beekeeping library and Waring's research and commitment to the study of honeybees shines through every page of this book."Chris Inch, Beekeeping in Ontario
