Bees play a vital role in healthy ecosystems as pollinators. Through their regular activities, bees fertilize plants thus allowing them to fruit, reproduce, and produce food crops for human and animal consumption.
Not only are bees invaluable to natural environments, they are also critical to our foodways and economy. Pollinators are so important that one of out of every three bites of food in the US depends on honeybees and other pollinators.
If honeybees are so important to nature, humans, and our economy, why are honeybee colonies down in recent years? The answer lies in how we've been taking care of them.
In this introductory course on Natural Beekeeping for Beginners, professional beekeeper, herbalist, and owner of Honeybee Herbals, Courtney Cosgriff explains natural beekeeping and why it important to look to the bees for best practices of their care. This course focuses on natural beekeeping and taking a holistic approach to our relationship to the bees. Natural beekeepers consider themselves guardians of their hives and support the bees in their own natural tendencies. Topics covered include a honeybee overview, the anatomy of the hive, a brief history of humans and bees, the modernization of beekeeping, steps to becoming a beekeeper, red flags, and products of the hive.
