In this episode, Patrice and Dani answer the question where do bees get their protein, discuss the pros and cons of a 2019 landmark reference book, Honey and Pollen Flora of SE Australia, share some recipes for salad dressings, and on the subject of food, take a look at whether or not eating pollen is good for you, and if eating local honey really does keep allergies at bay.
