Day 2 Advanced natural beekeeping made easy One person ticket

Publisher: Bees for Development

Sunday June 17


On Day 2 we go over the entire yearly cycle of caring for your bees, in much detail.  Spring colony build-up; natural and artificial swarming, propagation, and breeding; honey flows and honey harvest; successful wintering.  We discuss the advantages and limitations of each management procedure, how it influences productivity, well-being, and health of the colony.  We cover practical ways to limit beekeeper's intervention and how to make your apiary low-input and sustainable.  We cover local nectar resources, how to take advantage of them and avoid sugar feeding.  Finally, bee health; treatment-free beekeeping; and crafting and marketing premium eco-pure honey and many other products of the hive.  You can have a few thriving colonies, or make a living doing natural beekeeping - and Dr Leo shows you how.

The Course will take place in Monmouth’s historic Shire Hall, NP25 3EA, across the road from Bees for Development.
