At this time of year, our attention switches from bees to people. Briefly.
So we were delighted to welcome Carolina Spurlino onto our Bermondsey Street rooftop.
Carolina was keen to know more about sustainable, responsible urban beekeeping after hearing my talk about our breakthrough Apis Forage Index at Sustain / London Food Link’s recent pow-wow.
It was even warm enough for peeping into a hive, through one transparent acrylic crown board in the apiary.
Carolina grew up surrounded by bees and alpine flowers in Northern Italy, where her family still farms. And she wrote a delightfully evocative post harking back to that starting point on her excellent www.tastesofcarolina blog.
