Last year saw the first Northern Gathering for Natural Beekeepers. This year, we're back with many different topics.

The Gathering is for anyone with an interest in natural or balanced beekeeping at all levels and the role of bees in the wider environment.

Be inspired, learn and share a weekend of talks, demonstrations, workshops, conversation, music and camping.

More details and booking link can be found at:

Look forward to seeing you there!

I attended the gathering last year and learned so much, as well as meeting many lovely people, some of whom had travelled considerable distances to attend. It was my introduction to bee keeping and now that I am a new beek I am so pleased that it is being held again and that I have the opportunity to learn more, ask questions and to have fun!
Can't wait!

Conserving wild bees

Research suggests that bumble bee boxes have a very low success rate in actually attracting bees into them. We find that if you create an environment where first of all you can attract mice inside, such as a pile of stones, a drystone wall, paving slabs with intentionally made cavities underneath, this will increase the success rate.

Most bumble bee species need a dry space about the size a football, with a narrow entrance tunnel approximately 2cm in diameter and 20 cm long. Most species nest underground along the base of a linear feature such as a hedge or wall. Sites need to be sheltered and out of direct sunlight.

There is a spectacular display of wild bee hotels here
