The BeeHolder, April 2011
At the last committee meeting, John Beavan suggested the idea of Bee Safaris. A bee safari is a day of bee-related activity, usually moving from hive to hive and site to site. To make these more informative, John suggested that instead of him just going and inspecting three or four hives in a day's work, all of the bee keepers whose hives he is scheduled to inspect will go along too and join in on the inspections.
That way people can pick up on different things, see how others keep their bees and generally have a bee good day out. It is important that we do not spread disease so hive tools & other equipment will be sterilised as we go along.
If you are interested in this idea, please get in touch wiyh a member of the committee.
