Ten years ago Steve Benbow decided to keep bees. There was just one problem: he lived in an ex-council tower block with no garden. Undeterred, he built a hive on the flat roof, and there began a lifelong obsession with bees.
Bee-keeping is a craft which you can perfect over a lifetime. Bees themselves are extraordinary and complex creatures. And, yet, keeping bees and making your own delicious honey is something anyone can do. And you can do it virtually anywhere.
Living in a city it is easy to forget the seasons, to depend on supermarkets, to live off processed food. Keeping bees is the ultimate way to connect back to nature. Building a hive, nurturing bees to thrive, reacting to the elements and, best of all, harvesting your own homemade honey is something to really be proud of.
Steve Benbow's honest, warm-hearted diary shows what a satisfying adventure it is to keep bees in the city. Read it and join the revolution.
