Conscious Beekeeping: Practical Organic Approaches for Healthy Bees and Growing Apiaries

What can beekeepers do to help our bees thrive and flourish? Starting from a consideration of the honeybee colony from the biodynamic point of view, we will look at swarming as an expression of the bees’ vitality • healthy rhythms of life in the hive, and how to support them • learning to discern when to intervene and when to let your bees work out their problems on their own • working with top bar and Warré hives • the Varroa mite • and more.

Ample time will be left for discussion and questions. Weather permitting, we’ll visit the Pfeiffer Center’s apiary, where techniques discussed in the classroom will be demonstrated.

Beginning beekeepers are encouraged to also attend Friday’s half-day introductory workshop.
