About the event

Suitable for those interested in learning more about these amazing creatures that are vital to planetary health, this is a great way to spend a few hours here at Shaman's Retreat.  David is an experienced and knowledgable beekeeper and has been studying and keeping bees for over 12 years.  Their quiet hum is actually very meditative and their use of frequency is astonishingly accurate.  David's passion for his bees is very engaging and during this thorough introductory workshop,  you'll have the opportunity to:

  • learn how a honey bee colony work, including naming and identifying the different castes of bees
  • recognise the basic components and function of a traditional national beehive
  • have the opportunity to construct some bee frames
  • discover what a typical bee year might encompass and what to look out for
  • gain knowledge of how to deal with a swarm
  • receive hands-on experience of opening and examining a working hive
  • sample some honey from David's bees
