Natural Beekeeping with Angela Röell
Over the course of this full-day seminar, Angela will provide an overview of the anatomy, physiology, and social structure of honeybees and their hives.  Participants will learn about the tasks and activities of an organic beekeeper's year and with consideration for honeybee nutritional needs  reflect on how to plan for bringing bees into their lives.  Angela will review the various types, components, and appropriate equipment for different styles of hive honeybee hives and provide guidance on non-toxic approaches to mite prevention and treatment. Participants in will be guided through the process of designing and creating an action plan for their scale and circumstance.  Everyone will leave this workshop with a deeper understanding of honeybees, the annual cycle of healthy hive care, and a vision of what beekeeping would look like integrated into their own daily life.


Angela Röell is faculty member at the University of Massachusetts Sustainable Farm and Food System program, and teaches at Greenfield Community College and the Franklin County Sheriffs Office. Angela teaches experiential courses in beekeeping, food systems, food waste, and food preservation. Angela owns Yard Birds Farm and Apiary, a small farm and beekeeping business operating out of Montague, MA.
