Bees for Development Journal
Bees for Development Journal is our quarterly magazine with readers in over 130 countries. It is a valuable source of information about apiculture worldwide, providing unique news and views.
With donations we can send the Journal free to beekeepers in developing countries.
The Journal includes practical advice on beekeeping and management techniques, future events (including training programmes) and reports from beekeeping projects and associations worldwide. It provides an avenue into the beekeeping network which is important for information exchange and making new contacts.
For example, in the June 2013 issue (20 pages) the contents include:-
- Practical Beekeeping - good beekeeping practice
- Beekeeping Economics
- Honey Industry in South Africa
- Death of the Bee Tree
- EU Honey Directive
- Practical Beekeeping - straight combs in top-bar hives
- More on Warre's People's Hive
- Recent Research
- Look and Learn Ahead
- Notice Board
BfDJ is currently published in English with four editions each year.
