Trees are wonderful and amazing beings, true teachers, friends, and wonderful introductory guides to nature’s mysteries. Sometimes though, we don’t realize what a powerful impact different trees have had on our lives.

A vast quantity of food that people consume daily is present due to bee pollination – you can thank bees for everything from vegetables through to grains. This is an awareness that Orren Fox has had his whole life.
The author of Do Beekeeping – The Secret to Happy Honeybees, published in 2015 and penned when Orren Fox was 18, has always had a strong affinity for bees. Otherwise known as The Barefoot Beekeeper, Orren Fox wrote the book to encourage people and communities to take up beekeeping.
The sustainability advocate, longboard builder and student, now in his 20s, was an accomplished beekeeper by the age of 15, having attended a weekly workshop in Topsfield, Massachusets to learn the basics and taking responsibility for nurturing four hives at home and two at high school.

The imaginative book presents a world where transformation is contagious’ and where the young protagonists find themselves in an unusual orphanage called the Azafran Home for Girls under the supervision of the enigmatic La Madre. The major activity at the orphanage is the planting and growing of saffron flowers and the collection of its delicate spice. And the girls need to be made ready for when the time comes for the harvesting of the saffron spice. As the main protagonist, Teresa, develops a stronger bond and relationship with La Madre, she suspects that there is more to the Azafran Home for Girls than just picking flowers.
The Saffron Collectors comes fully color-illustrated with over 40 hand-drawn watercolor paintings from Naomi Hasegawa, a young artist.
