Urban Beekeeping IV, 2015

250.00

The honey bee population has declined massively in recent years due to the rise of GM crops, habitat degradation and the use of pesticides.  Bees pollinate over 30% of our food and 90% of our wild plants; without bees to spread seeds, many plants, including food crops, would die out. 

In response to the bee crisis, there has been a huge increase in the number of people taking up bee keeping, especially in cities. Lynda Laird's Urban Beekeeping series follows the work of Camilla Goddard, a full time beekeeper for Capital Bee in South London. She first started keeping bees eight years ago and now has hives all over the city: in parks, churchyards, primary schools and on the roofs of hotels.
