The Song of Increase — Our Bee Book Is Here

The Song of Increase: Returning to our Sacred Partnership with Honeybees

The Song of IncreaseThe Song of Increase. My life is all about bees. I teach monthly classes, show people how to gather and re-home swarms, rescue downed tree hives, help friends get started with bees, and I speak around the country at bee, nature, and agricultural conferences. My bee work has even taken me to Dominican Republic where I worked with rural beekeepers. I am immersed in the world of bees.

I speak bee. I write about my conversations with bees and the experience of building a deep relationship and learning from each other. My dear friend, Susan Chernak McElroy (New York Times bestselling author of “Animals as Teachers & Healers”),  helped me turn all that writing into The Song of Increase  — a book ready to find you and sit on your lap for a good read. The 300 page book is not a “take all you can from a hive” beekeeping book. It’s about how to interact with bees in a respectful manner, how to understand subtle bee behavior and bee culture, and how best to support the colonies entrusted to your care so they thrive in their bee-ness. You will become a better keeper of bees through reading it. I like to think this behavior also makes us better human beings, too. How wonderful that is!

UPDATE: The book was originally self-published and, to my great surprise, it took off on three of Amazon’s Top 100 lists. These lists change daily and when I checked today, it’s #12. Earlier this week it was #3! This caught the interest of three publishers who bid against each other for world rights. I chose the publishing company Sounds True who will bring it out Sept 2016 with more fanfare than I could ever muster on my own.

Robin and I will recording the AUDIO BOOK to release in late summer.
