Matt Somerville and John Haverson demonstrate how to construct a Cevennes style Trunk Hive, in England #treebeekeeping

These trunk hives are based on a design used by members of the group ‘ L’arbre aux abeilles’ in the Cevennes National Park in France.

A lecture given by Jamie Ellis at the 2014 National Honey Show entitled “Addressing the Sustainability of Beekeeping in the 21st Century”. The National Honey Show gratefully acknowledge the sponsorship of the Garfield Weston Foundation and Maisemore Apiaries Ltd.

To help promote his all-natural approach, 40 year beekeeper Jerry Dunbar participated in the creation of this video series demonstrating his practices and the life cycle of a healthy colony of bees. Natural Beekeeping follows his narrative, augmented with HD footage of seasonal and hive behavior. Dunbar also introduces products that can be made from the healthy substances found in the hive – including mead, honey straws, propolis tincture and edible lip balm. Natural Beekeeping is perfect for the classroom, library, or daycare center (kids are mesmerized by the honey bees)… and will broaden the horizons of anyone interested in ecological, health, and nutritional matters. Included: – Beekeeping Intro – Hive Tour – Swarm Removal – Bee Package Installation – Adding a Honey Super – Triangular Bee Escape – Hive Jacker – Harvesting Supers – Honey Extraction – Packing Comb – Fall Feeding and Spring Inspection …and more!
