Making Bees Your Business
Mar 11 @ 7:30 pm – 9:00 pm

Making Bees Your Business

Increasingly bees and pollinators are recognised for their services to support food production, deliver public goods and build natural capital.

Caroline Drummond MBE, LEAF Chief Executive will highlight the work that LEAF (Linking Environment And Farming) and their farmers are doing to support bees, pollinators and habitats, against a background of climate change and the need to transform our food and farming systems.  Highlighting some of the global stresses, she will focus on the opportunities at a more local level, with farmer to farmer engagement, science-based decision making, the market opportunity through LEAF Marque, education and public engagement, such as LEAF Open Farm Sunday and citizen science.

Wax Lyrical

by Joyce Nesbit

About the Speaker: Having started beekeeping in 1990, Joyce is now a Master Beekeeper, BBKA Honey Judge, BBKA Trustee and Chair of the BBKA Spring Convention Committee.  After being impressed by high-quality wax exhibits in Honey Shows, Joyce improved her wax preparation skills by attending lectures and workshops on the topic.  This then led to her being involved in creating wax items for displays by North Shropshire Beekeepers at the National Honey Show.

Joyce will describe some of the techniques that can be used to produce candles and other attractive beeswax items, whether for showing or as gifts.

Information with regard to the login details for the Zoom Meeting will shown approximately 3 days prior to the talk.
