Members meeting and get together and speaker: Master Beekeeper Daisy

Daisy is a horticulturist, has a degree in Field Biology and has been keeping bees since 2006. In that time she has acquired a tremendous amount of experience with her own and others’ bees.
She is a member of the Wisborough Green Beekeepers Association and a valued demonstrator and teacher at their training apiary. Daisy completed her BBKA exams and in 2012 became a Master Beekeeper.
Daisy currently has 30 colonies with one hive located in the local primary school. Every week during term time, 6 children assist her with inspecting the bees. So far, over 60 children have experienced handling bees, a project she is very proud of. One student completed her Bronze Duke of Edinburgh Scheme with Daisy during 2016, the whole project being based around bees and beekeeping. Daisy also gives a number of very useful talks throughout the region (Sussex) both to beekeeping and non-beekeeping groups and can usually be seen at the annual South of England Show, explaining the ins and outs of bees to the visiting public.

This event is free to members of the SSCG and their friends. If you are not a member and would like to come you are more than welcome, but please just drop us a line to speakers@sscoppicegroup.co.uk
