Bees and Seeds   -  Saturday 1st June 



The evening aims to broaden our approach to the customary methods of beekeeping and to viewing seeds and plants in their relationship with the earth and heavens. We are all aware of major problems affecting both areas. Einstein, and thinkers of our time, have said that you cannot solve a problem using the same kind of thinking that created it in the first place.



It is being suggested  that a new approach to Beekeeping, Horticulture and Agriculture is required now to meet the demands of caring for our bees and plants. This will demand broadmindedness, an imaginative essence in our thinking and a willingness to think beyond empirical conclusions.



Speakers:  

Dr Michael Antoniou, head of the Gene Expression & Therapy Group at King’s College; London

Heidi Herrmann, a founder member of the Natural Beekeeping Trust; (www.naturalbeekeepingtrust.org

Peter Brinch, of Open Pollinated Seeds, an experienced seedsman and speaker on Biodiversity, also a biodynamic practitioner; (www.open-pollinated-seeds.org.uk).



The evening will begin with a talk on Genetic Engineering by Dr Antoniou. Peter Brinch, will speak on seeds and biodiversity after dinner, followed by Heidi Herrmann, who will speak on bees and introduce us to the (new) and very successful ‘Sun Hive’.
