I am currently managing the Apiary at Hawkwood with the help of the bee team – a group of committed bee enthusiasts, as well as support from OrganicLea.
I started my training in Beekeeping in 2009 with a conventional course. I instantly felt troubled by some of the practices that were being encouraged and this sent me on journey to find more sustainable ways of working. I have subsequently trained bio-dynamically and sustainably. Since then I have set up and managed an apiary, one of the first using sustainable methods in London, facilitated others in a support role to manage community apiaries and have delivered numerous courses and lectures promoting sustainable beekeeping. I feel it is vitally important we learn about Bees as they are a way for people to understand and connect to the wonder and complexity of the environments we live in.
