We had a very successful training day with David Heaf and a good turn out despite the dreadful weather.
David brought a Warre hive and other equipment and explained the theory and the practise of using Warre hives as a sustainable and bee friendly way of keeping bees.
David has written a book on the subject of bee friendly bee keeping which is detailed and finely indexed. This is available from Northern Bee Books.
David translated Abbé Warré's book Beekeeping for All and has made it available as a free pdf download.
He talked about his own modifications and the simplicity of construction which makes this type of hive very accessible and affordable for all.
