Hi, I’m Mandy. I am a beekeeper and a member of the British Beekeepers Association. I will be setting up a beehive at Highgate Newtown this summer. Bees are vitally important to the planet. They pollinate plants which ensures their survival and by extension, ours. And of course they make delicious honey!
They are not dangerous and very rarely sting, but wasps give them a bad name. People often mistake wasps for bees but while wasps are aggressive, bees are generally placid.
I am excited to introduce these amazing creatures to the community and will be running bee workshops and events for both children and adults where you can learn all about bees. We will also be having taster days once we get our first batch of our organic, wildflower honey.
Look out for these on our events page in the coming months.
I look forward to spreading the word about bees.
