It was conceived by one ["Davis Bee Charmers", Bee Charmer] in 2011 with the intention of fostering a community of people willing to create a new relationship with our friends, the bees (honeybees and 60 other Davis bee species!)--a relationship based on love and gratitude.<br> + <br> + For so many years--100 million in fact!--the honeybee-ing thrived on its own, building its beautiful hexagonally patterned homes in trees for the most part while collecting pollen, nectar, propolis, and water, while performing an astonishing service to the diversity of life on this planet through their pollination of flowering plants. It is true our very lives depend on beekeeping -- about a third of the food we eat (most vegetables, nuts, and fruits, as well as all the dairy--think alfalfa!) would not be available without the services of the honeybee.<br> + <br> + In the last 100 years, in conjunction with the rise of industrial agriculture, the honeybee has been treated as a honey-making-and-monoculture-farm-pollinating machine, to the point that one person will "manage" 60,000 hives, trucking them over several thousand miles per year to farms with only one type of nectar, robbing them of honey and feeding them sugar water, dousing them with more and more "treatments" such as miticides to control the varroa mite (in effect creating supermites), and queen breeding for docile traits to the point there is little genetic diversity left -- Rudolf Steiner predicted in 1923 that if humanity continued to cultivate the honeybees by artificial means, we would, within eighty years, witness the mass disappearance of the bees. His prediction has come true. In 2006, Colony Collapse Disorder, which continues to this day to wipe out colonies all over the world, has awakened the consciousness of people all over the world to rethink our relationship with the bees.<br> + <br> + As demonstrated by the film [http://www.queenofthesun.com/, "Queen of the Sun"], there are natural and biodynamic beekeepers all over the world creating bee sanctuaries and helping us to heal our relationship with the bees! Be part of the solution and get involved with your local beekeeping group; for those in Davis, that would be the ["Davis Bee Collective"]!<br> + <br> + The Bee Sanctuary provides a place for members of the Davis Bee Collective to keep bees safely using no chemicals or treatments.

THE GRAND OPENING CEREMONY WILL BE HELD IN EARLY MARCH 2012...please join the Davis Bee Collective google group to stay up to date on the latest workshops and parties and other bee related events.<br> + <br> + Resources shared at this apiary include beekeeping equipment, beekeeping suits, extractors, jars, books, and smoker materials, so the usually expensive hobby of keeping bees can be affordable to all. Recently, members of the Davis Bee Collective and Davis Bee Charmers hosted a workshop to build top bar hives from scratch...the cost was under $40 for a hive...other materials needed to maintain the hives is shared and free to use at the apiary.<br> + <br> + The apiary will include habitat not only for honey bees but also for some of the 60 native species of bees that call Davis home.<br> + <br> + As of February 2012, a garden layout was developed by many of the volunteers and plans are underway to prepare the soil with compost, rainwater catchment, and a water-conserving garden technique called hugelkultur. Flowering plants will be installed this spring as they come in. Please consider donating flowering perennials to the apiary so that the bees can have a good source of nectar and pollen. Money to buy things for the apiary would also be appreciated...perhaps you'll get some honey in return....<br> + <br> + Other plans include a water fountain for bees to have a local source of fresh water (without drowning), observation hives, artistic hive stands made from old bike rims, and murals on each hive.<br> + <br> + The apiary provides an ideal opportunity for students and Davis residents to learn how to keep bees...no prior experience is necessary, just a passion to learn. Every couple weeks through the spring and summer, there will be Sunday workparties (or other days announced to the Davis Bee Collective google group) to tend to the apiary and the flower garden. People who keep hives there take care of the apiary. If you are a student graduating and leaving town, we can make sure to find someone new to adopt the hive...this is a place of learning and many are interested to learn the craft.<br> + <br> + Hive building workshops occur in the winter months (most recently in January 2012, 30 people built 20+ top bar hives, many of which are at the Sanctuary).</span> </td> </tr> <tr> <td> Line 8: </td> <td> Line 20: </td> </tr> <tr> <td> <span>-</span> [[Image(bird house hive1.jpg, 350, thumbnail<span>)]]</span> Bees can make home wherever there's a cavity...this one found a birdhouse to move into! </td> <td> <span>+</span> [[Image(bird house hive1.jpg, 350, thumbnail<span>,</span> <span>"</span>Bees can make home wherever there's a cavity...this one found a birdhouse to move into!<span>")]]</span> </td> </tr> </table> </div> Davis Bee Sanctuaryhttp://daviswiki.org/Davis_Bee_Sanctuary2012-02-15 21:41:11DerekDowney <div id="content" class="wikipage content"> Differences for Davis Bee Sanctuary<p><strong></strong></p><table> <tr> <td> <span> Deletions are marked with - . </span> </td> <td> <span> Additions are marked with +. </span> </td> </tr> <tr> <td> Line 1: </td> <td> Line 1: </td> </tr> <tr> <td> <span>-</span> The Davis Bee Sanctuary, established spring 2011 <span>by the Davis Bee Charmer, is a place where people can keep a hive of bees and share resources with a community of Davis beekeepers called the Davis Bee Collective.
