Talk to local gardening club

We have now been developing rosybee as a site for 18 months and as a business and research for a full season so are beginning to have some interesting stories to tell as well as the knowledge gained over years as plant grower and beekeepers. With that in mind, when our local gardening club asked if I could give a talk I readily agreed.  I have always intended to add talks, presentations, training sessions and site visits to the repetoir of activities we undertake and so this gave me the perfect 'kick up the backside' to get some material together. I really enjoyed the preparation for the talk because looking back through all the photographs forced me to reflect back on how much we have achieved in a relatively short time.

The talk went well with lots of questions, requests to visit the site and some excellent feedback on how interesting it was. So, on the crest of this wave of success I am happy to annouce that we are open for bookings on any of the following range of topics:

  • plants for bees in the garden
  • starting a plant nursery
  • beekeeping and the plight of our bees
