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?

I totally forgot to post this picture, my bad :) I had other things on my mind this Summer and have not been blogging much sorry.
As I already mentioned I have sown lots of bee friendly plants this year and Sunflowers were one of them. Of course the Sunflowers have finished with blooming at this stage :)
They grew very well this year. By the very busy Bumblebee and Honeybee activity I recon it gave lots of pollen and nectar.

This was the largest ever area I have sown for the bees so far :) and Im glad we have so much land to do so. Bees in our environment have very little wild forage thanks to the mono-crop agriculture.


  1. That first photo looks like a scene from a Van Gogh painting. I LOVE sunflowers. You've got a good sized lot dedicated to wild flowers. Nice going. Are all those annuals which will disappear under all the snow you get?

    1. Thank you :) They are annuals but Borage and Calendula will self seed in this climate. Even Phacelia can if the winter is mild.

  2. Do you know if sunflowers grow well in the same conditions that apple tree grow? It would be great to dot our orchards with sunflowers to stimulate more bee activity.
