Big thanks go to all those who attended the South West Natural Bee-keeping Convention here at the beginning of July and helped to make it such a great success. Our speakers and demonstrators offered a wide range of bee-related topics and activities and everyone contributed their own experiences and expertise. Of particular note were the log hive creation workshops run by Matt Somerville ofwww.beekindhives.uk and John Haverson of the Hampshire Natural Bee-keeping group.

Sincere thanks too to the Wwoofers Georgie, Nora, Inga and Domenico who did so much to help me prepare for the Convention week-end. The Farm looked really beautiful and everything was just about ready in time ! Thank you all very much indeed for the fun as well as the hard work !
As a follow up week-end we will be organising a “Bees in Trees” week-end 2nd and 3rdApril next year so make a note in your diary and we will let you have details as soon as arrangements are in place.
In the meantime we are organising a monthly Beginner’s Bee-friendly Beekeeping Course here on the 3rd Tuesday evening each month 5.00 to 8.00 pm starting 22ndSeptember, 2015 until March 2016 (not December). This is particularly arranged for those who may not be able to attend week-end events so do spread the word.
