Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Keeping Bees in Towns and Cities features everything an urbanite needs to know to start keeping bees: how to select the perfect hive, how to buy bees, how to care for a colony, how to harvest honey, and what to do in the winter. Urban beekeeping has particular challenges and needs, and this book highlights the challenges and presents practices that are safe, legal, and neighbor-friendly.

The text is rounded out with profiles of urban beekeepers from all over the world, including public hives at the Maryland Center for Horticulture, beekeeping on an office balcony in Melbourne, Australia, and a poolside hive at a hotel in Vancouver, British Columbia.

About the Author

Luke Dixon is a professional beekeeper based in Soho, London. He manages hives for the London College of Fashion, Ted Baker, and Kensington Palace, among others, and keeps his own hives in the gardens of London's Natural History Museum. In the winter, when beekeeping duties slacken off, he returns to his first career as a theater director.
