Honey Bee Hive Winter Prep
By November a honey bee hive is already hunkering down for winter, and there are some ways you can help them with that. This will be a hands-on and suit-on exploration of how to do so. We will: put upper entrances, look at mouseguards, talk about honey stores, prep shavings boxes, and try out hive wrapping techniques. This will be geared towards beginners who already have some understanding of honey bees, such as terminology and basics of what goes on in a hive. This is weather dependent, so check back here if there's any question - a very rainy day would be hard to deal with. Please wear or bring light colored clothing, long sleeves and pants and closed shoes. If you have or can borrow a bee suit or veil please do - I will have some for folks to use also. COST: sliding scale $5-20 per person, payable at the class. This inspection will be led by Amy... Amy Antonucci has been keeping bees for honey and pollination since 2005 and has been involved with organic agriculture for 20 years. She speaks at libraries, schools, and conferences and has been interviewed on the radio about apiculture. She served as VP of the Seacoast Beekeepers Association of NH and organized their Bee School for a number of years. She now teaches through Seacoast Permaculture.

What we're about

Permaculture aims to regenerate healthy, productive landscapes and communities by consciously applying ecological principles to the design of human habitats. It is a theory, a mindset, and a lens for looking at the world in order to create a sustainable and just planet for all. Permaculture’s three ethics - Earth Care, People Care and Fair Share - and its twelve principles are used to design systems that create and foster healthy relationships. Through this discipline, each of us can take greater responsibility for ourselves and our world by developing life skills for sustainable living to become active participants and producers.

“Permaculture gives us a toolkit for moving from a culture of fear and scarcity to one of love and abundance.” -Toby Hemenway (permaculturist & author)

What we do: We build community, share ideas and learn how to move forward mindfully and in tune with the ethics of Earth Care, People Care and Fair Share. Through the Seacoast NH Permaculture Meetup and other partner organizations we bring people together by offering workshops, speakers, movies, discussions, swaps, potluck meals and other events.

"We don't know what details of a truly sustainable future are going to be like, but we need options, we need people experimenting in all kinds of ways and permaculturists are one of the critical gangs that are doing that." -Dr. David Suzuki (geneticist, broadcaster, environmentalist)

Our mission: Seacoast NH Permaculture Group empowers individuals and communities to work together to create resiliency through the use of Permaculture in the NH seacoast area and beyond. We inspire and teach each other by sharing skills, knowledge, and regenerative practices, nurturing our connections and celebrating our work.

“You cannot save the land apart from the people or the people apart from the land.” -Wendell Berry (farmer, environmentalist, author)
