Bee appreciation continues its upswing in the United States.  Just take a look in your neighborhood, and see if any of your neighbors have planted pollinator gardens. 

Honeybees and their output are celebrated at the Oregon Honey and Mead Festival, coming this weekend to Ashland. 

Sharon Schmidt is a beekeeper and the festival founder.  She visits the studio, while we get Amina Harris on the phone. 

Dr. Harris is the director of the Honey and Pollination Center at the University of California-Davis.  Prepare to have many of your honey questions answered.
