Learning from Free Wild Bees and Tree Beekeeping with Jonathan Powell
Jonathan Powell, a beekeeper since early childhood, has an important message for us: beekeeping, as commonly practiced today, is not helpful to the bees. Jonathan will talk about the way in which we can all help the bees by our interest in their life habits and needs. Jonathan will tell us about re-wilding the honeybee in the historical context of tree beekeeping, an ancient tradition finding much new interest.
Jonathan is a trustee of the Natural Beekeeping Trust and a founding member of Tree Beekeeping International. He is the author of The Tree Beekeeping Field Guide, a concise introduction to this important topic.
