Patreon is a membership crowdfunding platform that provides business tools for creators to run a subscription content service. It allows creators and artists to earn a monthly income by providing exclusive rewards and perks to their subscribers, or “patrons”.

Why Patreon?

Are you interested in learning about sustainable beekeeping and wildlife gardening? Do you want to help pollinators, and discover how best to create a healthy habitat? For the price of a magazine subscription you can have content and helpful tips and information sent to you, ready to view at your leisure.

Be part of a community that puts biodiversity front and centre of both beekeeping and gardening.

Choose a tier to suit you, whether it’s just to see how a beehive works and get planting ideas, or a full mentoring service wherever you are in the world!

For more information about the tiers, please see my main Patreon page.

About me

I have been keeping bees since 2009, and my background in agriculture, earth sciences, and natural history has led me to see beekeeping as a way of connecting with the landscape in a way no other interest can. I have a fascination with feral – particularly tree-dwelling – colonies as they have proven their ability to survive without intervention.
