Living with Bees – Beekeeping for Beginners Workshop

Our first Living with Bees Workshop in June was a great success. The event took place Our first Living with Bees Workshop in July was a great success. The event took place at Chateau de Anderson in Uluwatu; with Yan facilitating the day. The workshop was divided into two main aspects:

  • A presentation for beginner bee keepers.
  • A practical demonstration of how to maintain the hive.

 

As part of the workshop, the participants received their first colony of bees and their accompanying hive.

Satoko, who currently lives in Uluwatu and works as a massage therapist, kindly shared her experience in a short interview with us:

What inspired you to join the workshop?

I wanted to participate and contribute in a global movement that contributes positively to our natural environment. Working with bees is something I can do from home but has a global impact.

I am not only interested in bees, but I was thinking about what would be good for nature.

 

What did you learn in the workshop? 

Until then, I had planted plants in my garden and enjoyed the visits of butterflies and squirrels, but after learning the workshop, I learned that all insects, animals, and plants circulate. I decided to keep bees to help nurture and protect the land I live upon.

 

How has the workshop impacted you?

I now have plants in my garden that bees like.

I’ve come to take care of small insects more than before. I used to dispose of snakes and other things in the garden, but now I leave them as they are.

 

How do you find keeping the bees you received from the workshop? 

My bees are very healthy and work silently every day.

Keeping bees has given me the opportunity to think about what we can do to coexist better as a part of the earth as humans with big brains.

Keeping bees has been a treat for me!
