Building TreeNests for HoneyBees

June 4, 2022 @ 10:00 am - June 5, 2022 @ 4:00 pm PDT


We are inviting land stewards who are interested in restoring habitat for pollinators. Bee-lovers, forest-tenders and those interested in permaculture and ecological balance will particularly enjoy this weekend. This gathering will have time to engage mind (learning), body (building), spirit (intention/prayer), as well as fun community connection time.  In this 2-day experiential weekend workshop, we will: Learn to design, build, and install a beautiful wildlife arboreal nest for honeybees; celebrate with a circle of like-minded people in this forest we call home; have fun doing something positive for the earth in these crazy changing times; learn about free-living honeybees as members of pollinator communities and new ways we can support them thriving; leave with instructions, materials lists, and know-how to build your own arboreal nest for wild honeybees; enjoy the spiritual connection with sacred honeybees, pollinators, and each other;

Conservation – This is a permaculture-based offering to enhance the biodiversity of our lands, mitigate the loss of natural nesting habitat for unmanaged, free-living honeybees, and contribute with love to our local forests. Climate change, fires, tree clearing due to beetle infestation, and tree-fall caused by drought have all reduced wild habitat for our pollinators. Working with pine logs from our own forests, we can replace lost log homes for free-living bees, bats, and other precious pollinators.
