Vanishing of the Bees

Tuesday, October 20th, 2009

We were at the Tricycle Theatre and the Gate Cinema last week witht the co-director of the film, Vanishing of the Bees, Maryam Henein. We were on stage for the QandA’s after the screening. It was great to see so many people interested in the welfare of the bees.

Urban beekeeping in the news

Wednesday, October 7th, 2009

One our pupils who came on a taster course earlier in year, was featured by AFP as a new breed of London beekeepers. Jon told the reporter that a one day course on urban beekeeping had set him on the right path.

Well done Jon, keep up the good work.

Our course in September went down really well.

Here are some comments:

“Just a note to say thanks so much for yesterday, it was great! I really enjoyed the whole day – the information, the lunch and meeting the bees. It was lovely to meet you too!”

“Just wanted to say thanks again for Sunday. I’ve been reading my bee books again and it all makes much more sense now. I was interested in keeping bees before but am now definitely planning to make a start next spring. I’ll certainly recommend Urban Bees to anyone I know who’s interested in learning more.
