The accelerating loss of animal species and biodiversity reflects the urgency with which we need to move towards the preservation of honeybees. This course is an introduction to a system-based approach to beekeeping and an inquiry into innovative gestures within the biodynamic apicultural field.  We will combine biodynamic principles, contemporary entomological research, the study of natural wild beehive environments and cutting-edge trends in life sciences to better understand the complexities of the life and the needs of honeybees. The ecological integrity of wild honeybees has become an essential constituent for dramatic shifts towards wholeness of apiculture.  With the newly gained knowledge of the course, participants have new tools to creatively adapt to fundamental challenges to the survival of honeybees. Michael will share various aspects of his work, among them examples from current rewilding projects, the craft of traditional tree-apiculture, and innovative biodynamic strategies for beekeeping. We will study the essential role of honeybees in sustaining life on our planet and at the same time explore ways to preserve their life and foster environments conducive to their health and dignity. For all levels of beekeeping; beginners welcome. 4 evenings: July 9&23, August 6&20
