The Barefoot Beekeeper – practical & natural beekeeping in top bar hives

Phil Chandler, author of The Barefoot Beekeeper (now in it’s 4th edition)

Learn about ‘balanced beekeeping’ in top bar hives: a simple, practical, chemical-free way to have healthy and happy bees in your garden, with the possibility of your own honey harvest, but without the cost and complications associated with conventional beekeeping. Phil will follow up this workshop with a practical presentation at his biobees stall demonstrating the kind of simple equipment that you can make at home to get you started on low-impact, low-cost, beekeeping. www.biobees.com

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
