In this workshop, Michael will give an introduction to ‘Apis Arborea' ( and an approach to apiculture ‘outside the box’.

Rewilding and the restoration of natural honeybee nest habitat are part of an effort to develop a comprehensive and wholesome paradigm of apiculture. The accelerating loss of animal species and biodiversity reflects the urgency with which we need to move towards preservation and a systems-oriented approach. The framework of Apis Arborea is one of honoring and protecting the essential role of honeybees in sustaining life on our planet while preserving their life and fostering environments conducive to their health and dignity.

Michael will share various aspects of his work, among them examples from current rewilding projects, the craft of arboreal apiculture, bee-centric strategies for beekeeping, and an introduction to the intricate nature of honeybees.
