The day Brigit Strawbridge realised she knew more about the French Revolution than the native trees she walked past every afternoon on her way to work, she literally stopped in her tracks. This realisation led ultimately to her journey of reconnecting with the natural world and discovering her particular love for bees; here she talks about her book “Dancing with Bees: A journey Back to Nature” In this talk, Brigit shares stories of her journey back to nature and back to noticing– recounting the honeybee swarm that moved into her log hive, the bumblebee that nested in her bedroom, and the Leaf-cutter bees that found a home in her bee hotels. She delves into the world of pollinators, illuminating the differences between honeybees, bumblebees, and the often unknown and under-recognised solitary bees, which are so integral to pollinating the world around us. Brigit Strawbridge Howard is a bee advocate, wildlife gardener and naturalist. She writes, speaks, and campaigns to raise awareness of the importance of native wild bees and other pollinating insects. She lives in North Dorset with her husband, Rob. http://beestrawbridge.blogspot.com/
