July meeting | London Beekeepers Association

August 07, 2018 Balham WI 0 Comments

 Our July meeting was abuzz as we welcomed Richard and Natalie from the London Beekeepers Association to talk to us about bees in London.
 We learned all sorts about bees and, notably, that the #1 thing we can all do to help save bees of all sorts (there are over 200 varieties in Britain) is to plant bee-friendly plants in our gardens, windowboxes, and flowerpots.
We enjoyed observing the small active hive that Richard brought along and some of us even located the queen! A treat at the end of the night was sampling local honeys from hives in SW12 and SW17!
