I am a beekeeper from Poland who seeks the thin line between keeping bees and letting them live as they want to without any intrusion. I hope it is possible to connect those two. Unfortunately, in Poland, where I live, bees die in big numbers if left without toxic or biocidal treatments. It is a great challenge before us, beekeepers, to allow bees to build up their own mechanisms to cope with their problems. But it is an even greater challenge to convince beekeepers to do so.



I am a cofounder of Natural Beekeeping Association “Free Bees” http://wolnepszczoly.org/about-us/

and the Group “Bee Brotherhood”

I am also a participant of the Project “Fort Knox”

http://bees-fortknox.pl/eng.html

which is about selecting locally adapted bees and giving guarantees to each other.
