One of the participants grandfather worked as a beehive maker in the 1930’s which sparked off a conversation about beekeeping.

We invited David Wright from Edinburgh and Midlothian Beekeepers Association to help answer some of our beekeeping questions. This led to making a top bar beehive with David and finding out more about the different skills required to keep bees. Interested folk completed the Introduction to Beekeeping Course run by EMBA in 2014 and 2015. We are now searching for adequate sites to start our own apiary.
