Brigit Strawbridge Howard is a bee advocate, wildlife gardener and amateur naturalist. She writes, speaks, and campaigns to raise awareness of the importance of biodiversity, with a particular focus on the hidden world of native wild bees. Her debut book, Dancing with Bees was shortlisted for The Wainwright Prize in 2020.
Brigit and her husband, Rob, moved last year from Shaftesbury to live on the southern edge of Bodmin Moor, Cornwall, where they are busy creating a new wildlife garden and exploring the wonderful new habitats on their doorstep. When she’s not watching toads, grass snakes, insects, and other wild creatures that visit their garden, Brigit can be found sitting by the stream that runs through their village, watching Dippers.
Brigit's books include:
Dancing with Bees: A Journey Back to Nature, published by Chelsea Green Publishing
Currently working on a second book, with opening chapters set in Shaftesbury. To be published Spring 2022
