New here!

I've spent some months in London/ mainly West Hampstead and Scotland as a young man 40 years ago. Jesses, a lot happend since that. Today I enjoy finding contacts there (your city) again. Myself I am experienced in that meadow orchard thing here in Baden-Württemberg, close to Stuttgart. Here around we have some 250000  acres of meadow orchards to be managed. Mostly it's small private properties, but also community land and farmland.Often connected and also spotted. I am a longtime beekeeper,…

new sunday opening!

We are pleased to announce that starting in August, the Meadow Orchard will open on the last Sunday of each a month for a Community Day

We hope to combine a day of caring for our beautiful Meadow with a bit of a social event - a lovely shared lunch and a chance to meet old friends and make new ones.

We will continue to open on Saturdays every other weekend - ie. except the Saturday prior to the last Sunday

Saturday workdays 12-4pm

Bees in trouble

The honeybees at the meadow have been dying in large numbers and the new colony has not progressed far in establishing itself. I have looked inside the hives and found no serious evidence of disease. I wonder about the nectar in the flowers after the long dry spell. I am therefore feeding them, which I don't usually do. I have been reading about distant feeding today, and will do this later, so I am putting a container of feed in the bushes at the far end of the meadow. If you stumble on it…

Moppers celebrate new floor for eco-building!

The home-brewed elderflower champagne and the (less locally-sourced) Cava flowed as Moppers celebrated the latest milestone in the eco-build.  

The beautiful new floor was generously donated by local business, Jordan Andrews Ltd, and layed by the amazing Jane, Dan, Abi, Patrick and other volunteers.  Thank you all so much!…

Swarm

The bees swarmed probably Friday 15th May

I saw them when I visited Saturday, and was able to collect and hive them without making them cross - wow. However I made them very cross on Monday when I decided to feed them honey as it was pouring with rain - whoops…

Bees

The bees are in good shape and there are drones already, so I am visiting almost every day to check for swarms. If anybody is at the meadow and is able to check the trees around the hive for swarms, could you please text me? Could save me a trek over there.07506628060.

Thanks

beeszzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

Well - maybe not so many zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzs as that

The bees got off to a good start this spring, but some time in late March their numbers rapidly diminished.

It was very fortunate that Caroline Washington, the bee inspector, was able to come yesterday thanks to a cancellation.

Here is the gist of what she told us - Babak and I were both there.

They were 'overhoused' and therefore working too hard to stay warm. I think I am a bit out of touch with how cold it gets…
