WE WILL BE BACK IN BRIDGES
(as well as on Zoom)
Tuesday 17 August 2021 at 2.30pm
The talk is entitled "A Beekeeper’s Year" and will be given by Val Vivian-Griffiths
I delight in introducing bees, their wonderful natural history and the care required to keep them healthy and safe throughout the years. They reward me with honey, a sweet but very sticky gift!
In order to keep bees one needs to have a knowledge of their complicated natural history and the requirement to keep them healthy and safe, just like any other form of stock.
This takes a lot of care and attention, and in this talk I explain the tasks that I, as a beekeeper, have to do throughout the season.
Val has been a beekeeper for 22 years and now runs only one apiary at her home on the Kymin. Together with her husband, Jim, they have 20+ colonies. Both are qualified Master Beekeepers and, until COVID 19 hit, were the Trainers for Dean Forest Beekeepers. They are assessors for various qualifications for the British Beekeeping Association.
For an invitation to the talk, please e-mail Mike Saunders at firstname.lastname@example.org stating whether you wish to attend in person at Bridges or via Zoom.
