Cody Reeder documents a year of his beekeeping experiences in many videos extending several hours. There is a tremendous amount of information which I have not reviewed, some techniques are not particularly sustainable but I think the video series does a wonderful job detailing the activities of beekeeping. I will embed 6 of his videos but because there are so many I put the link to his video playlist below:

I watched all 54 videos in his series. I really like that he doesn't use pesticide and chemical treatments. The only non sustainable aspect of his beekeeping I see is the use of sugar, which I guess is objectionable.. The bees would more than likely be sustainable if we didn't rob the honey from questionable reserved hives such as 1st year hives, or drought year hives.

That was exactly my thought!
