Hives Roof Building Workshop – September 19, at 2pm
The Dunbar Beekeeping Club and Horizons Ecobuilders are hosting a workshop to build hives roofs. We Tools and materials will be provided. Participants will leave with a hive roof that will keep the entrance dry during the rainy months and will help build four roofs for our Dunbar Apiary. Spots are extremely limited. Please email email@example.com if you would like to register.
The bees continue to bring us together, into circles of connection and communities of care, and give us a chance to think about our relationships with the land and each other.

Spring has arrived and the bees are buzzing. All four of the community centre hives made it through the winter. We have had an amazing spring for blossoms and this shows in the health and honey production of our hives. In the next weeks, you will notice the introduction of honey supers on each hive. These are shallower boxes that go above the deeper boxes used for brood rearing.

Till next time, Diane
