Natural Bee Keeping:
Peter Brown iss the Chairman of the Biodynamic Association and the farmer at Tablehurst Biodynamic Farm in Sussex where Heidi Hermann is Head Beekeeper. Visit the Trust’s website for details of the Trust’s activities. https://naturalbeekeepingtrust.org
The Natural Beekeeping Trust was established in order to be of assistance to anyone seeking advice and tuition in bee-friendly practice and to demonstrate sustainable bee husbandry in the context of organic/biodynamic horticulture because no insecticides or pesticides are safe for bees. They explore methods of beekeeping that respect and encourage the bees’ natural behaviour.
The talk includes a discussion of the Trust’s Sun Hive, an innovative hive design based on an ingenious combination of skep baskets made of rye straw and wooden support structures. The shape of the hive harmonises with the movement gesture of the bee colony and enables the bees to design their brood nests according to their own innate criteria. The Trust provides workshops on how these hives can be made at home.
