Hello!
My name's Luise and I've been permaculturing for over two years now. I'm a PDC graduate, currently working on my diploma and turning my little garden into a permaculture paradise.

I've been living in Germany and happily beekeeping there, using Warré's methods. Now I'm moving to VT and I'd love to get to know some natural beekeepers in VT or neighbouring states. Anyone out there?

Have a great day!
Luise


Please move this topic if this part of the forum is not ideal for it - maybe beekeepers tend to mingle more in the critter care section?

Hi Luise,

I'm not sure where in VT you'll be- but I keep bees in top bar hives here.

Totally check out Kirk Webster. Hes a bee keeping legend and is one of the chillest guys I have ever talked to about the subject (he came and gave a lecture to one of my classes at Green Mountain College). Also check out the Honey Gardens in Ferrisburgh. That guy applies his products in a therapeutic kind of way ( Im looking at a jar right now that says "apitherapy").

Good luck and welcome to Vermont!

Thank you so much, foundsailor!
I just looked at Kirk Webster's webpage was immensely pleased and surprised to find that he is a treatment-free beekeeper. I don't treat my bees here and they are doing fine, but from what I read on the VT agriculture site it seemed like that would not be an option in VT.
Now I'm inspired and looking forward to getting in touch with Kirk Webster!

also http://anarchyapiaries.org/ in Hudson River Valley if you go on a trip there for some reason.
 
It's a pleasure to see superheros taking such an interest in science. And this tiny ad:
