Bees are an essential part of farming around the world and Chelsea Gardens is no exception; like many small scale organic farms, bees are incorporated into the farm plan. With no experience and having read two books on the subject as my only introduction I’ve been given the title of head beekeeper. Mentored by a friend of the farm managers who happens to be an entomologist in her second year of beekeeping it’s going to be a steep learning curve but one that I’m looking forward to.

    with no experience in beekeeping and having read two books, you had two books’ worth of knowledge more than anyone else at the farm, so clearly you were the right choice for head beekeeper. and look – you did great! i’m eating some delicious honey right now thanks to you.
