Finding new Ways of Living with Bees

IMG_9258Gaia Bees was founded to honor the essential role of bees in sustaining life on our planet. Our mission is to ensure the health and survival of bees, and thus, all beings.  Gaia Bees advocates for a fundamental shift in apiculture and develops new practices toward a bee-centric approach.
Our work focuses on three areas: installation and care of “landscape apiaries”; research and development of sustainable apiculture strategies; offering educational/training programs.
SONY DSCWe examine how the natural integrity of honeybee nests can inform and heal our apiaries and landscapes, and how the wisdom of honeybees can be an inspiration for the evolution of new paradigms of life

Our mission acknowledges the importance of the instinctual wisdom of honeybees and their fundamental birthright to express their life form freely. These core principles are the essential part of our vision of healing.  We are developing programs which link these core elements with biodynamic and indigenous components as well as entomological research of wild Apis Mellifera.

Apis Arborea is our most recent conservation venture. It is dedicated to arboreal apiculture and the rehabilitation of the primeordial apain nest.
Our mission is to preserve the life and resiliency of honeybees through rewilding, the restoration of habitat and natural hives, and the adaptation of a holistic and systems based biological paradigm.
We partner with organizations, landowners, and backyard beekeepers to redefine apiculture “beyond sustainability” while aiming towards resiliency and renewal.

We are focusing on:
– Providing bee-centric hive designs that are centered on optimal bee health.
– Restoring the biosphere through linking to wild Apis Mellifera.
– Defining the fundamentals of apiculture with the principles of the life forces of Apis Mellifera.
– Changing the paradigm of our relationship with honeybees.
