My name is Dr Margriet Dogterom and am the founder and owner of Beediverse. I write this blog for all who love bees and who want to learn more about these wonderful creatures.
If you are interested in growing fruit, this is the society for you. Four times a year, they put out a magazine called Pome News. It is full of great stories, How to, recipes and much more. I just received my winter 2013 issue. Homemade apple sauce is one I need to try out. Spices added are ginger, anise, cloves and cardamon. Mmm sounds delicious. Other interesting writeups include a description of a trip to some old orchards and identifying the apple varieties. Fascinating. Another interesting How-to article on grafting onto old trees.
