Author Biography

Sarah Wyndham Lewis and her husband, Dale Gibson, founded Bermondsey Street Bees in 2007, a beekeeping and sustainability consulting business which was awarded 2016 Small Artisan Producer of The Year at the Great Taste Award. The advent of bees in her life prompted her to transform a small, neglected patch in Suffolk into a test-bed for bee plantings. By teaching herself how to garden from scratch, she has formulated her own pragmatic approach to planting. Her first book Planting for Honeybees was published by Quadrille in 2018.
