The other month, I read an article stating that bees are dying at an alarming rate. At first, I didn’t really care much because I’m allergic to some bees, but I kept reading on, and it mentioned that bees are critical pollinators: they are responsible for seventy percent of the produce that we consume every day. This means that if bees were to go extinct, our diets would suffer tremendously. I think it is so interesting - my mindset went from not liking bees at all to wanting to protect them, so when I was given the opportunity to review the book, The Bee-Friendly Garden, I was extremely excited!
The Bee-Friendly Garden is written by Kate Frey and Gretchen LeBuhn. Kate Frey is an award winning garden designer, while Gretchen LeBuhn is a bee expert. The women bring their knowledge together by providing an extremely well-written, educational book that any gardener, or other person wanting to be more environmentally-friendly and help our world thrive would love.
I definitely recommend reading this book. Every person should be aware of the dangers of dying bees. The Bee-Friendly Garden not only tells us what we can do to help keep the bees around, but it goes into detail about the different types of bees and wasps, it tells us why we need bees, and it also tells us why having a bee-friendly garden is essential!
I received this book from Blogging for Books for this review.
