During the past month we have received a generous donation of nine swarms from beekeeper Eric McAuley. Eric's calm and gentle bees swarmed from his hives and are now in residence here at the Abbey Apiary.
On 2nd and 3rd September, our bee caring mentor, Adrian Iodice from Beekeeping Naturally, visited us. Adrian, Sr Veronica and I discussed all things bees, bee spirituality and shared some great books. There is so much history to beekeeping!
