Keeping Backyard Bees

Keeping Backyard Bees is a joint effort by Mother Earth News and Grit magazines to create a hive mind of information on bees, beekeeping, pollen, hives, honey, and much more. Our audience may be seasoned beekeepers, interested in starting a hive, or just concerned about the well-being of bees and want to know how to help. You can make a difference, and we’re here to show you how.
