Bees in the cemetery update 30 June11

 

Thursday 30th of June

 

On Sunday when we checked the bees we found a minor engineering problem in our second hive. The first (swarm) hive has settled in well and nearly covered all the frames with a text book combination of food and brood. However, the second hive of reared black bees came on standard sized National foundation frames. This means that when we put them in our deep brood boxes there was some space underneath. Naturally the bees have gone ahead…

Join 10:10 and send a message to our MP...

For anyone who hasn't come across the 10:10 campaign - it was launched a few weeks ago and aims to get people and organisations to commit to cut their carbon emissions by 10% by the end of 2010 - hoping to create enough pressure to encourage the government to make a national commitment. The project is backed by the guardian - see http://www.guardian.co.uk/environment/10-10 for more...



The campaign is gathering real momentum... there is going to be a motion in Parliament this week… Continue

What's it all about?

The Transition Towns movement began as a grassroots attempt by communities to work out for themselves how to address the twin problems of climate change and the end of cheap oil. Transitioners believe that life will be better – more local, more in touch with nature, more vibrant, less stressed, less chemical – after oil, and that we will be better prepared to deal with the challenges if we start working together now.

A Transition Town initiative is a group of concerned individuals who use… Continue
