You Tube Video - Brother Adam and the Buckfast Bee

Posted by Helen Nelson, Monday, 17th October 2016 @ 7:29pm

  • More on video. This one gives an insight to the lovely Brother Adam and his life's work of breeding the Buckfast bee species as well as lots of super info on beekeeping in general. I reckon that this will be particularly interesting to the Foster Parents, and valuable for members who plan to do SBA modules. I'll add the link to a file in the Files Tab>Education for easy reference in the future.
