Winter meeting – Geoff Redwood – Bees Abroad
Geoff is the Chair of Farnham Beekeepers and works with Bees Abroad as a volunteer. The charity was formed in 1999 and aims to provide training and education in beekeeping skills in developing countries. Projects are primarily undertaken in Africa but work has been undertaken in other areas including Nepal and South America. Training presents the additional challenge of dealing with the highly defensive African honeybee and for a host of predators unfamiliar to beekeepers in the UK, including honey badgers, snakes and reptiles.
