Biodynamic Apiculture: Healing the Planet through Apiculture, GGF 4/22

With Michael Joshin Thiele
in the Wheelwright Center
at Green Gulch Farm

  Saturday, April 22, 2017
9 am – 4 pm

The rising annual mortality rate of honeybees, currently close to 50 percent, demonstrates the urgent need to shift towards wholeness in beekeeping. As wild honeybees survive in non-managed ecosystems and nest sites, they represent a resource for new strategies for contemporary apiculture and a fundamental shift in bee stewardship. 

This workshop will explore the biodynamics of the nature of honeybees, introduce bee-centric models of bee conservation and will provide a framework for re-wilding beekeeping. Michael will illustrate this approach with examples from current bee restoration and re-wilding projects and provide resources to integrate bee-centric strategies into "backyard apiaries."

Open to all levels of beekeeping and bee-lovers.
