Somerset Beekeepers Association Online Talk: Bee Time: Lessons From the Hive with Mark L. Winston

Date: Thursday 3 February 2022

Thursday 3rd February 2022 from 7pm until 9pm.

“There are powerful lessons to be learned from bees about how we humans can better understand our place in nature, engage the people and events surrounding us with greater focus and clarity, interact more effectively in our relationships and communities, and open ourselves to a deeper understanding of who we are as individuals, communities and a species. I’ll talk about my experiences over 40 years of walking into apiaries, and the lessons learned from a life spent among the bees.”
