I just love the colors in this photo by Lorelei Caracausa. Her husband says Lorelei is interested in beekeeping techniques from the 1800s through the early 1900s, and has much of the equipment to demonstrate early beekeeping at living history events in her home state of Texas. Sounds interesting; maybe we could get her to write something for us.

  • Beautiful colors, Lorelei – an unusual shot!
    If you haven’t run across them, you might be interested in these books by our Kentucky SBA President and (now) State Apiarist, Tammy Horn.
    Beeconomy: What Women and Bees Can Teach Us about Local Trade and the Global Market (2011)
    and
    Bees in America: How the Honey Bee Shaped a Nation (2006)
    Both from University Press of Kentucky
    Her third book, in the works right now, will cover “bees and trees” as she describes it. Tammy works for the Appalachian Regional Reforestation Initiative, which restores areas damaged by strip mining and mountaintop removal by planting with native, pollinator-supporting trees.
    Best of success with your research AND beekeeping!
