In this whirlwind overview master beekeeper Leo Sharashkin introduces his methods of natural beekeeping which promote hive health and productivity with virtually no labor from the farmer. The seminar touches on an understanding of how bees live in nature, keeping bees naturally without interfering in their lives. He discusses how to build low-maintenance, bee-friendly hives, particularly explaining horizontal hive models and their advantages. Whether for landscape restoration, crop pollination or the sweet harvest from the hive, the time has never been better for farmers to consider adding some hives to their farm.
