ZEN AND THE ART OF LIVING WITH BEES
This class will provide an overview of a holistic approach to apiculture for beekeepers and all "bee-lovers" to explore the honeybee from new vantage points. Topics will include: biology, the life forces and natural gestalt of bees, alternative beehive designs, an overview and study of the life-rhythms and cycles throughout the bee year, biodynamic approaches and bee-centered management, along with the the study of various texts and contemporary bee research. Held at the beautiful HomeFarm (Dry Creek Healdsburg, Sonoma County, CA), with a farm lunch to follow.
Michael Thiele is a Sonoma County based apiculturist, founder of Gaia Bees, and co-founder of Healdsburg's very own "Melissa Garden", one of the first bee sanctuaries in the country. Michael is featured in the documentary film "Queen of the Sun" and has been published in a number of journals and books.
