There is nothing about browsing though a magazine. There are some great beekeeping magazines, but what’s missing is a magazine devoted to pollinators more broadly. Enter 2 Million Blossoms, a new quarterly magazine launched in January. We talk to the Kirsten Traynor, the editor, about the magazine and how it aims to fill this gap.
Dr. Kirsten Traynor describes herself as an: “English major, who won a honey bee hive in a raffle and never looked back.” She earned her PhD in bee biology and is currently investigate how pesticides and other stress factors impact the social dynamics in a colony. She is the former editor of Bee World and American Bee Journal. In January 2020, she took the leap and launched 2 Million Blossoms.
