Sam, our Evaluation and Impact Officer says:

"Here, I’m inspecting a beehive to make sure the colony survived over winter and is healthy enough to make it through summer; when doing an inspection, you look for the queen, any eggs or brood she’s produced, and any diseases or pests.

I started learning about beekeeping in January through online lectures, and have recently begun my practical lessons in the local association’s apiary.

Bees are so important to our natural world and it brings me joy to learn and take care of them! 😊 "
