Highgate Cemetery
Swain's Lane
London N6 6QX

Highgate Cemetery Bee-keeper, Ian Creer, will talk about honey bees in general and in particular, those resident in Highgate Cemetery.
Ian will cover the differences between honey bees and other bees native to the UK, our relationship with them (including their importance to agriculture and the environment) and the life-cycles and roles within the honey bee hive. He will also discuss the threats to honey bees, the causes and remedies, and compare honey bees in the countryside to those in the City; in particular, those in the cemetery, their forage and the type of honey they produce compared to honey from other sources.
Ian will be bringing along a demonstration hive.
