Phil ran this workshop in 2019.
An alternative approach to the care of bees. How to develop new understandings and ways of relating to the bee that work with the natural behaviour of the creature rather than the enforced and stressful behaviour seen in conventional, chemical-dependent, beekeeping. Phil does not advocate the farming of honey. This talk is on how to support bees, not rob them and Phil will be demonstrating a nest box and some comb.
