    Build Your Own Golden Mean Beehive

    Workshop & Film

    When: Saturday 16th & Sunday 17th March 10am to 5pm

    What: The dimensions of the one-room-hive are set according to the “golden mean”. It is a universal principle within all forming forces in nature and is found in art, architecture and ancient philosophy. It’s also called the “divine proportion”.

    The Golden Mean Beehive has been developed to make working with them easier and healthier for the bees! The viewing window allows the bee-keeper to look inside the hive without disturbing the bees, this is a less invasive practice. The beehive gives the bees the space to build natural comb with greater depth than regular beehives.

    To purchase a beehive like this, that would be shipped from abroad would cost around £479.

    Cost: £300, deposit required. Installments are possible.

    All materials are included in the price, using locally sourced wood.

    Places are limited.

    Some carpentry skills would be useful.

    If you are interested in building please contact julia@feedavalon.org.uk or paddywak23@gmail.com for more information

    Film and food on the Saturday evening. Screening of ‘Honeyland’ 7pm Cost £5
