Debbie Rosario took up beekeeping three and a half years ago and loves it.
She is a member of the West Herts Beekeepers Association (WHBK)
“ I have four hives now – I love honey and have always been fascinated by bees so it was an obvious move for me. Beekeeping is a long held tradition that goes back to medieval times, it’s a very therapeutic hobby, we learn so much from their perfect community, and pollination is so important – bees are crucial to our sustainability.”
Debbie advises anybody interested in beekeeping to join their local group before buying equipment. The groups promote healthy bee colonies through skilful bee-craft management, give advice and practical help on handling and safety and support and train new beekeepers. They also collect swarms
