When I became interested in bees I attended a beekeeping course. It became clear to me that serving the bees would not be achieved by the kind of beekeeping advocated. I immersed myself in studying the life of bees and found inspiration from various notable bee-centered beekeepers, among them Michael Thiele in the USA. In recent years I have applied my skills as a carpenter to making homes for bees and placing them in local woodlands. It gives me great joy to see them populated by local swarms in search of suitable cavity.
