Mason Bee Revolution: How the Hardest Working Bee Can Save the World - One Backyard at a Time

Dave Hunter, founder and owner of Crown Bees, has been working for a decade to learn, teach, and apply natural techniques on solitary native bees. What started out as a backyard hobby has turned into the world’s largest solitary bee company devoted to making more food for the gardener and farmer.

Dave founded the professional organization Orchard Bee Association, and has advised for the USDA’s Integrated Crop Pollination project for the past 5 years. He firmly believes that teaming with science to ensure best practices are followed has us with healthier bees.

Changing perceptions about how bees pollinate isn’t easy! Many of our bee assumptions stem from the honey bees we know and love. Dave will help you unlearn most of them. What’s true for honey bees is NOT necessarily helpful for our food-making native bees of the world. Dave’s stories will help you easily understand natural bee basics.
