Jacqueline Freeman, from the online PDC, talks about natural beekeeping, or permaculture beekeeping, in this new excerpt.

Do take a look if you're interested in learning more about bee behavior and how to understand the bees more.

Jacqueline emphasizes the need for beekeepers to abandon the use of chemicals, a conventional practice that hampers the bees' natural evolution to deal with pests, predators, and diseases. She shares her belief in creating healthy conditions and providing good food for the bees, allowing them to survive even in challenging circumstances like Varroa mites or Deformed Wing Virus. She encourages aspiring beekeepers to prioritize the bees' needs, reminding us that bees are not just honey producers for humans, but an important part of our natural ecosystem. Lastly, Jacqueline shares her favorite hive and recounts a fascinating story of a bee swarm choosing to make a home in a hollow tree section in her front yard, emphasizing her approach to beekeeping, which is not about maximizing honey production, but about fostering a healthy environment for bees to thrive.

It's truly pretty remarkable some of the results Zach shows and begins to discuss.  This snippet of the presentation is part of a full class he did at the online permaculture design course.
