The Barefoot Beekeeper was the title of my first book, published in 2007. Since then, I have written several more books, aimed at people who want to keep bees in a simple, reasonably natural way, without investing a lot of money and free from the synthetic chemical treadmill.
This podcast is irregular, variable in content and hopefully somewhat useful and interesting to beekeepers of all flavours.
You can find my website at www.biobees.com and you will find me on Facebook and rarely on Twitter.
Caring for bees needs to start with a healthy soil. Modern
agriculture uses a lot of chemicals just to grow our food, let
alone the processing. That harms the soil, plants, and the
pollinators. There is a different way, and we need more people
educated to create that healthy environment. Daniel, who is the
interviewer in this podcast is currently gathering funds to learn
soil microbiology from the perspective of growing any kind of plant
without chemicals, and guaranteeing maximum nutrition and yield. If
you have a garden, some land, a crop, and wish to see the quality
of the biology under your feet, consider taking his offer of soil
testing once he finishes his course. As a thank you for believing
in him, the cost is much reduced from what is currently available.

Barefoot beekeeping is more about the bees than the honey. Phil Chandler, author of The Barefoot Beekeeper, talks about his low-tech, low-cost approach to beekeeping and interviews people whose work and research impacts the world of bees.
