You don't need to live on a farm to raise happy, healthy honeybees. All it takes is a small backyard and the guidance of Rob and Chelsea McFarland, founders of HoneyLove - a Los Angeles-based nonprofit dedicated to protecting honeybees and educating a new generation of urban, suburban and rural beekeepers. Beekeeping is a relaxing and intriguing hobby that requires little time.

Around the country, bee populations are declining - in part because bees raised to pollinate crops are not as durable as wild bees. Better Beekeeping has the solution. Better Beekeeping will walk readers through the inexpensive and easy to use equipment, their method for acquiring a hive for free, caring for the bees as they grow their colony, harvesting honey and prepping their bees for the cooler months.

With minimal upkeep, the hives will pollinate local crops and flowers and provide a bounty of delicious, all-natural, backyard honey.
Rob and Chelsea McFarland are the husband and wife team behind HoneyLove (honeylove.org). HoneyLove has more than 20,000 Facebook followers and a full calendar of educational and community-based events. HoneyLove has been profiled by the Associated Press, LA Times, ABC News, Time, Politico, LA Weekly, Sunset, Edible Westside and Cur...
