Beekeeping, a hands on tour of life within the hive

Our day will begin with a meet-and-greet; where I will run though the safety aspects of beekeeping. Stings are rare when safety is well considered. Now, it's time to get nerdy. We will discuss what happens within the colony, the social structure and the roles each honeybee has to play within the superorganism of the hive. The importance of the honeybee to our own lives; and to the world at large cannot be underestimated. The more that we know, the more that we can do to affect a change. Apiary tour: this is where we watch the bees at work. We find out what plants they are foraging, and why, on that specific day. By now you should be confident enough to get your bee suits on (provided by me of course) and do some beekeeping. With my help, you will be guided through the basic steps involved in a hive inspection. All of what we have learned during the day will be put into practice for what I promise to be an inspiring journey into the world of the Northern European Honeybee, Apis mellifera Mellifera.

My passion for beekeeping began over a decade ago. Avidly in search of more knowledge and experience I have visited beekeepers around Ireland and the world. In recent years, I successfully completed a Masters Thesis on the issues around breeding the honeybee here in Ireland. Since then I have been working on a project called Hive Mind. With Hive Mind, we are working to build awareness for the preservation of the honey bee here in Ireland and spread the love of our nectar-bearing fuzzy friends.
