Backyard bees book competition

October-December 2017

Thank you to all who entered to be featured in our upcoming Backyard Bees book!

A big thank you to all Organic Gardener readers and the broader backyard beekeeping community who responded to our “Show us your bees” callout. We have been so impressed with the experiences you have shared with us about how you are supporting the bee population in your area.

We have now selected the submissions that will feature in ABC Organic Gardener’s book The Contented Bee, which will be published by ABC Books in September 2018. We hope The Contented Bee will act as inspiration for more Australians to take up this environmentally beneficial hobby.

Congratulations to the following entrants who will have their story and photographs featured in the book and will be receiving a copy on publication:
