🏆Working Together to Improve Local Stock- BIBBA
Kevin Thorn is the coordinator of the Abberton Native Bee Project in Essex, where a group has been established with the aim of reintroducing the native honey bee to the area. The group works with Colchester BKA, Essex and Suffolk Water and Essex Wildlife Trust and has been operating for nearly 4 years. As an example of an established bee improvement group, Kevin will talk about his experiences of establishing the group, raising funds, working as a team and with minimal administration. He will also talk about some of the key lessons the group has learned along the way.
