The Made by Hand Series – The Beekeeper

I am working hard on final edits for Leaf (it’s going to be a long night, but we will be live tomorrow!) and I started thinking about this video series.
The more I do this, the more I realize that making a beautiful magazine is really so much like the handmade stories that these videos feature (at least as far as I am concerned – Leaf is as close to handmade as an online magazine can get). The other reason I thought to share this series with you is because one of the other episodes is about a distiller…and one of the shots is extremely similar to a shot in tomorrow’s issue of Leaf. The story is about Corn Whisky (aka moonshine) and how politics have played such a big part of this industry. Most recently because of the realtive inability for distillers to find large quantities of non-GMO corn. Super interesting.

Anyway – this is what is on my mind as I toil away – I can’t wait to share Leaf – Autumn 2012 – our #1 Year Anniversary issue with you tomorrow.

Made by Hand / No 3 The Beekeeper from Made by Hand on Vimeo.

A project from bureau of common goods, Made by Hand is a new short film series celebrating the people who make things by hand—sustainably, locally, and with a love for their craft.

Local farmer Megan Paska has witnessed beekeeping as it morphed from an illegal (and possibly crazy) habit to a sustainable, community-supported skill. Mirroring beekeeping’s own ascendance, she found more than just a living: “This is the first time in my life when I’ve just felt absolutely on the right path.”

Hi, I'm Rochelle and for 18 years I have worked as a landscape designer, author/writer, and design teacher. I've designed residential and hospitality (for hotels, restaurants, and spas) gardens across the USA and in the UK, Europe and the Middle East. After many years of teaching garden design topics in person, I launched the PITH + VIGOR Boot Camp series in early 2018. Through my blog, social media, and online courses (Garden Design Bootcamp and Planting Design Boot Camp) I aim to help homeowners learn how to confidently design and create home gardens that reflect their own personal and unique style.
