Yes, we must get together agai.

This is a movie that is free online until 22.11 which is very relevant.

thanks for the link Jenny. The hives are a thing of beauty and the principle is very aligned to top bar hives.  Our hive is almost completed and looking forward to getting the nuke.

We must have an Ooooby meeting again.

This is an interesting article about natural bee keeping.

Comment by Jenny LF on September 28, 2014 at 7:27am

I have just been reading this interesting article. At one point we had our farm under the OFANZ organic certification scheme but just at the point of receiving full certification, we let it go mainly due to the cost and this is the lowest cost certification scheme in NZ. 
The paper work as mentioned in this article definitely added a considerable amount of work.
I was wondering how many people here might be interested in getting together and working out a similar, local only system based on mutual support, minimal paper work and at no cost, similar to that described in this article? I suggest keeping it within the Masterton, Carterton, Greytown and Featherston area to minimise travel required.

Hella - I received an email from Ooooby saying you had posted about a potential "bee" meeting but I haven't been able to find it here:(

I just found this video which is very relevant to the subject of the next meeting we were discussing.

By the way - the monthly Green Dollar market is this Saturday, at the St John hall, Greytown. Well worth a visit!
I'll have my seeds and jam there, and Living Economies books, DVDs and magazines.

Anyone looking for budding/grafting material?
I can suppy 3 varieties of Ballerina (narrow column growth): Waltz, Polka and Bolero.
Also Monty's Surprise and Golden Winter Pearmain - the latter ripens really early.)
If you're after small fruits I have well rooted black currants, grapes and Tayberry.
