not just the bees that are busy
Jonathan, Dave, Sarah and recent volunteer recruits, John and Steve, have been working really hard with the bees over the last few months. After the wasp attack of last summer, they have split the remaining hive in two and reared a new queen in the new colony, marked green for 2019 and nicknamed Dotty. They have run an introduction to bee-keeping workshop. And extracted the first honey of the season to much excitement amongst July’s Stewardship Saturday volunteers. This hard-working team were also joined by an uninvited non-venemous snake – which wasn’t a member so slithered away.
