Log Hive Making Workshop for Natural Beekeeping

Log Hive Making Workshop for Natural Beekeeping

We are pleased to announce our first log hive making workshop in Herefordshire. As a participant, you will learn the skills you need to make a log hive. You will learn to design and make a log hive to stand on stilts, or to be placed securely, high up on a tree.  A log hive is like a  bee hotel for honeybees. It mimics the preferred home of honey bees in nature. Offering insulation against the cold in winter and a barrier against  heat in the summer months. 

Once you learn the skills you need to build a log hive, you are ready to build one for your garden or for family and friends, helping to save and encourage bees conservation in your area. 

The workshop includes discussion on the life cycle of bees in the wild, how to prepare a  hive and encourage bees to move in. There will be a wider discussion on how to help honey bees and other  pollinator insects.
