A Different Experience

Sometimes all it takes to see the world anew is a different experience of what we tend to perceive as simply ordinary. Beargrass Press, located in Portland, Oregon, writes, edits, and publishes materials that aim to offer an opportunity to glimpse beneath the surface of the natural world—whether a river, a beehive, or ourselves.

As we expand our awareness and understanding, we enrich our capacity for appreciation and wonder. We have much to celebrate!

New: The Bee Booklet

Pocket Guide to the Honey Bee provides an introduction to the pollinator we call the honey bee. It’s a full-color, 24-page, mini-book that serves as a year-round stocking stuffer, hostess gift, and garden party favor to tell (and remind) everyone how amazing honey bees truly are!

The Bee Book

Honey-Maker: How the Honey Bee Worker Does What She Does tells the story of the worker bee, the one we see in our flower and vegetable gardens, the one that continues to make today’s headline news. She is part of the honey bee colony that includes a queen, hundreds of drones, and thousands of other workers. Although there was a time when our association with the worker bee rested in the priceless honey and wax the colony produces—and still does, we now depend on her to aid not only the colony’s survival but also our own.

Learn how the honey bee worker does what she does—and why it matters so much to all of us.

Caution: Be prepared to be inspired by the small, golden insect we know as the honey bee.
