Bee Workshop

This workshop was one of a series of three workshops (Bees, Bogs, Trees and People). The bee workshop explored our human relationship with honeybees. Human beings have had a long relationship with the honeybee. We relied upon them for wax for candles and honey for sweetness and medicine. Now we know they are integral to our survival in their role as pollinators of the food we eat. Participants joined us and shared their stories, for an exploration into the world of the honeybee and how we can be their guardians and protectors.

Tree.

This workshop was one of a series of three workshops (Bees, Bogs, Trees and People). The tree workshop explored our human relationship with trees.  Trees once covered the earth, and within vast forests we human beings lived out our lives. We relied upon trees for shelter, food, fuel, and medicine. They connected land to sky, cleaning the air for our lungs. Now we know just how integral to our survival they are. Participants joined us and shared their stories, for an exploration into the world of trees and how we can reforest the world once more.
