Natural Beekeeping

Top Bar ApiRevolution has begun! Lets make some inexpensive Top Bar Hives and let them be pesticide free on their own natural comb! Che Guebee is a rebel bee fighting for the survival of the Biodiversity we all depend on and which is seriously endangered by deforestation and mono-crop agriculture! What kind of teaching have you got if you exclude nature?

Teaching Sustainable Beekeeping at the University of Copenhagen

Great news! My good friend and I have started teaching sustainable beekeeping in top bar hives on the University of Copenhagen. Two weeks ago it started with a power point presentation and yesterday we begun building the university's first top bar hive :) This course will last until October.
Students building the hive body
... building hive legs
... the roof being made
The finished hive :)

Next week we will be making an observation window and painting the hive as well as placing it in the right location away from passersby. We have 27 students so far and it seems they are enjoying it. In about 2 weeks we are buying a bee colony and the buzzing journey will begin :)

  1. Sounds like a wonderful endeavor! It's great to hear about young people getting into beekeeping.Today, I went to my local beekeeping meeting, and I estimate that 98% of the people there were over the age of 50. If bees are going to survive and thrive, we need to get younger people involved. Kudos to you!
