The departure from normalcy due to climate emergency and accelerating extinction rates of all species opens the door to a re-evaluation and re-conceptualization of core belief systems and practices in beekeeping.
This workshop will explore new vantages within a cutting-edge, biodynamic & arboreal apicultural world and will outline a framework of innovative practices and strategies. It promotes the re-alignment of apiculture with the fundamentals of wild apian ecologies and ethics. We will introduce the innovative concept of LocApiary (local watershed apiaries) and show how it can serve as a powerful resource towards a life-sustaining shift within apiculture. The workshop is also designed to further promote out-of-the-box thinking and to serve as a compass point for strategies beyond sustainability.
The ecological integrity of wild populations of honeybees (Apis Mellifera) is transforming the fundamentals of apiculture and initiating a radical shift in thinking for beekeepers, conservationists, and scientists alike. As a revolving new reality within the apicultural field, it has become a driving force of an inquiry into and the creation of a new, holistic paradigm of apiculture.
For beekeepers, conservationists, and anyone interested in a shifting apicultural paradigm.
