Natural Bee Keeping with BfD

Monica from BfD will be giving a talk/demonstration of Natural Beekeeping and leading a Bee walk in the grounds of Berrington Hall. She will bring some equipment (but no bees!) to illustrate her talk and demonstration, and some honeys for tasting. This workshop is for people who know nothing about bees or beekeeping, but Monica can answer further questions from anyone who is already a beekeeper or has some knowledge.

    – Introduction to natural beekeeping – indoor/ seated talk
    – Bees and plants – A Bee walk, finding bee-friendly plants, Honey bees live seasonal lives.
    – Trees, skeps, hives, bee houses – places honey bees live
    – Honey – should we be harvesting the bees’ food? Discussion – seated, or wherever we end up!
