Ross Conrad learned his craft from the late Charles Mraz, world-renowned beekeeper and founder of Champlain Valley Apiaries in Vermont. Former president of the Vermont Beekeepers Association, Conrad is a regular contributor to Bee Culture - The Magazine
of American Beekeeping. Ross has led bee related presentations and taught organic beekeeping workshops and classes throughout North America for many years. His small beekeeping business, Dancing Bee Gardens, supplies friends,
neighbors, and local stores with honey and candles among other
bee related products, and provides bees for Vermont apple
pollination in spring.
In this set, which includes the new, full-color, Natural Beekeping, Revised and Expanded Edition, and a DVD workshop, Ross Conrad brings together the best "do no harm" strategies for keeping honeybees healthy and productive, all of which are covered in a thoughtful, matter-of-fact way.
This filmed workshop follows Ross Conrad through the dos and don'ts of natural beekeeping, and offers practical information -- including details on apitherapy, the use of bee products in medicinal healing -- every aspiring beekeeper needs to know.
