Last night (Wednesday 28th May) we held a very successful event entitled ‘An evening with bees’ with members of Duhallow Bee-keepers Association. We had just over fifteen people who were party to both a talk and a practical demonstration covering all aspects of bee keeping as well as the importance of gardening for bees.
Several of the group are considering pursuing their interest further which is fantastic news and they will receive the support and knowledge from the experienced members of the group.
We have already been asked to repeat the event so it will be more bees and wine later in the summer.
Our own hive and bee garden are doing well and we hope to expand to two or three hives by next year. This will allow us to sell our own Secret Garden honey as well as show others how easy it is to keep bees.
