Bees for Peace and the inspiring Yossi Aud. "The bees produce abundance and healing in the world and all their products are products of health and medicine. "

Dear friends and supporters of the Natural Beekeeping Trust, We’d like to tell you what we’ve been up to since the last Learning from the Bees conference in Berlin, and give you a preview of what’s in store. Berlin conference/NBH magazine

The conference in Berlin was a great success, attracting a sizeable international audience. Various participants share their impressions in the current issue of Natural Bee Husbandry Magazine. Our much-loved journal is now on its 13th edition - it is heartening that our subscriber base is more than stable, indeed expanding month by month.

The current issue also contains an in-depth article about the special characteristics of trees favoured by bees for living in, by our friend Helen Leaf, whose interest in trees and bees have led her to some exciting discoveries. We encourage you to subscribe to what can truly be described as the good news, the inspiring news, in beekeeping. That there is so much of it, in so many countries round the world, it fills our hearts with joy!
