Recall the honeybees'
Source in Spirit
Be calm in their mystery
Provide their natural circumstances
As best you can
Allow their natural tendencies to emerge
Refrain from manipulating them
Keep selfish ends in check
They are connected
To all things...

Poet Michael Goldman reminds us that effective beekeeping requires being calm, centered, and aware - qualities enhanced through the practice of meditation.

studying bees at Camp Eureka

Watching honeybees at work can be a mesmerizing experience. Last summer's Camp Eureka campers were quietly intrigued as they studied bees at work in an observation hive. Learn how to keep your own bees on March 14, and how to create your own meadow to support birds, butterflies, and bees on March 21.
