#375: How Helping Bees Can Increase Your Gardening Production

In This Episode of the Vegetable Gardening Show

#375: How Helping Bees Can Increase Your Gardening Production In this episode of the Vegetable Gardening show, Mike chats with bee expert and chief scientific officer of The Bees Company about how raising bees at home can increase your vegetable garden production.

His expertise on bees and bee keeping has lead Noah to be featured in the New York Times, the Los Angeles Times and National Geographic on why bees are so important.

Noah is going to come on today and share his findings on the big three causes for the decline of bees, steps we can take to ensure we are not contributing to bee decline and a number of ways to help increase the number of bees.

From there, Noah is going to tell us about a new genomic process that has lead apiologists to learn more about bees through the genome of the honey they produce and how, with this data, they have a better understanding of what should be planted to make your local bees happy.

This, and so much more, on this episode of The Vegetable Gardening Show!
