Chop Wood Carry Water Plant Seeds is a blog about Self-Sufficient Homesteading. How can we live by creating a sustainable bio-diverse world, instead of by consuming and destroying the only one we have? What kind of teaching have you got if you exclude nature?

Top Bar Hive Placement

After a short discussion between teacher Michael and Me, decission was made to place the hive close to the school but away from the school complex, not to interfere with the rest of the Natural Gymnasium (which has nothing to do with self-sufficiency).
The hive entrance is facing south but the hive is getting plenty of shadow from the near by trees. I have level the hive and have placed the legs onto bricks.
I will be building a wooden wall behind the hive to protect it from the northern wind during winter. There is a huge lake close by and a small pond in our herbal garden just 10 meters away, im sure bees will have plenty of water.
