Review

“City dwellers across the country are rapidly discovering the appeal of urban beekeeping. Large cities like Chicago, Seattle, Boston, Dallas and San Francisco are even promoting beekeeping for pollination health, to keep city vegetation green and lush.” --USA Today
 
“Ashley English is the how-to voice of a new DIY movement.” --Erik Knutzen and Kelly Coyne, founders of Homegrown Evolution and authors of The Urban Homestead
 
"An approach to urban homesteading that inspires both action and admiration.” – Grace Bonney, founder of Design*Sponge
 
“The Homemade Living series is beautiful, in both aesthetics and intention. A friendly introduction to simpler living that people in barns and brownstones alike can appreciate.” – Jenna Woginrich, author of Made from Scratch and blogger for Mother Earth News and The Huffington Post
 
“What I love most about this series is how Ashley presents all of these could-be-complicated subjects in a way that's achievable and encouraging. It all feels totally doable...not to mention fun and fresh in the way she shares it all.” - Amanda Soule, Author of The Creative Family and Handmade Home, Found of the popular blog Soule Mama
 
“These four excellent books in the Homemade Living series offer great information on each subject for both beginners and intermediate users.” – Library Journal
 
“Perfect for the aspiring urban farmer on your list!...Tons of gorgeous photos, troubleshooting tips, and recipes makes these books a must have addition to any gardener's bookshelf.” -Re-Nest

Keeping Bees is one in a series of books from author Ashley English for the Homemade Living line. Each one (Home Dairy, Keeping Chickens, and Canning & Preserving) presents detailed, but accessible, information for the urban homesteader...These books are adorable and chock-full of info, too. This volume provides the bee basics, but then goes on to discuss things to consider before raising bees (your neighbors, allergies, pets and kids, legal ramifications, etc.), how to house them (and where), feeding options, equipment must-haves, where to purchase them and how to maintain a healthy hive, and, of course, their magical byproduct: honey (along with recipes to try!)...It also includes checklists, as well as suggestions for requeening, preventing a swarm, dividing the hive and more.” --Urban Farm

“English's warm, encouraging tone, along with plenty of detailed photos of every stage of the process, make this book a must-have for novice beekeepers...I highly recommend Keeping Bees with Ashley English: All You Need to Know to Tend Hives, Harvest Honey & More to anyone who is considering keeping bees. It gives you a good idea of what to expect, so you can decide if you want to take the next step toward beekeeping.” --About.com Organic Gardening
