    Just saw this article that was published in the NY Times, and thought these groups might find it interesting. It is about the importance of bees in the almond industry in California.

      I highly recommend the book/audiobook “The Beekeeper’s Lament” by Hannah Nordhaus. It goes into great detail about the activities of commercial beekeeping and the California Almond industry.

    • Cricket Aldridge

      Hi Irene. Join our Arizona Backyard Beekeepers facebook group and you can connect to beekeepers in your area. We will be posting our meetings for the new year soon. The furthest East will be in Mesa or Queen Creek, but there are beekeepers closer to you that you can connect with.
