Honey…Check out Today’s DIY!…(it includes a Free PDF Download)
This DIY comes to us as a reminder of the importance that bees play in the pollination process & honey production. Many, many folks are getting into beekeeping & we want you to consider if it your opportunity permits. The hive is based on the book Beekeeping For All by Abbé Émile Warré (get his book, Free PDF Download Click HERE).
Here’s a little background on this DIY Warré hive from the rear cover of Warré’s book:
This book describes the development, construction and operation of the ‘People’s Hive’ of Abbé Émile Warré (d. 1951). Responding to the obvious decline in beekeeping in France since his youth, Warré experimented with some three hundred and fifty hives of various designs with the aim of producing a hive that was simple, economical, bee-friendly and assured a surplus for the beekeeper. The resulting ‘People’s Hive’ described in his book L’Apiculture Pour Tous, which ran to twelve editions in French, is presented here for the first time in English. Warré’s hive can be easily made by anyone with basic woodworking skills or is available from suppliers in the UK, USA or continental Europe. The renaissance in beekeeping has produced a flood of beginners, many of whom will be attracted to the more natural way of keeping bees described here.
