Vermont Beekeepers Association, a regular contributor to Bee Culture – The
Magazine of American Beekeeping, and author of Natural Beekeeping: Or-
ganic Approaches To Modern Apiculture. Ross has given bee-related presenta-
tions and led organic beekeeping workshops and classes throughout North
America for many years. His small, human-scale beekeeping business, Danc-
ing Bee Gardens, sells honey and candles among other bee-related products,
directly to friends, neighbors, and the local community.
