Re-envisioning Beekeeping in a Time of Crisis
October 19 @ 6:00 pm - November 9 @ 7:30 pm
The accelerating loss of animal species and biodiversity reflects the urgency with which we need to move towards the preservation of honeybees. This 4-evening course is an introduction to a system-based approach to beekeeping. We will combine contemporary entomological research, the study of natural wild beehive environments, and cutting-edge trends in life sciences to better understand the complexities of the life and needs of honeybees. We will study regenerative practices that create sustainable apian ecologies and explore ways that are conducive to their health and dignity. The instructor will share insights from his work as the executive director of Apis Arborea (www.apisarborea.com). For all levels of beekeeping, beginners are welcome. Registration will open soon.
