Beekeeping in Ecotopia and Common Name Index & Honey-plant Bloom Chart

Lark D'Arbole was born in 1948. During 1982 he was transported into the year 2100. After several days in the future, he reappeared back in 1982. Other time trips have occurred at irregular intervals since that first trip. As a result of D'Arbole's visits he has been able to give us an idea of in the Pacific Northwest 118 years into the future. On one of his visits in 1983, Lark brought back the following report.

Also included is a Common Name Index & Honey-plant Bloom Chart.
