Californian Trip – Feb 08

Californian Trip
Alison and I took a trip out to Bakersfield, California to get first hand experience of large scale beekeeping and pollination.
1.2 million hives are needed to pollinate 600,000 acres of almond trees in California. We wanted to see what this looked liked and talk to the beekeepers involved.
We saw the massive operation first hand and we talked to the beekeepers who were struggling with the effects of colony collapse disorder.
It was sad and fascinating.
Will write more shortly.
