Wall Street Journal says "Blessed are the Beekeepers"

12.01.11

Authors Randal Rucker  and Walter Thurman say that, "The most celebrated pollinator is the honeybee-and for good reason."  In a wonderful article in the Wall Street Journal, these professors say that "close to 2.5 million hives of bees are managed by fewer than 2,000 commercial beekeepers, who take their bees on the road each year to pollinate blueberries, almonds, cranberries and cornucopia of other fruits and vegetables." Our garden club's speaker this month is one of those such beekeepers.
