Zeidlerei Workshop (29 & 30 Aug)
An intensive, hands-on workshop on Zeidlerei, the centuries-old tree-beekeeping tradition, mainly practiced in East Europe. Under the guidance of Polish and German Zeidlers, participants will learn key aspects of the craft: its history, how to carve and install log hives, both traditional and modern tree-climbing techniques (weather permitting), safety precautions, tool maintenance, and more.
Limited to 60 people.
Conference (31 Aug & 1 Sept)
An international bee-centric conference, featuring expert scientists, beekeepers, foresters, conservationists, activists, and more. Keynote presentations, panel discussions, and audience-participatory breakout sessions address politically sensitive issues, such as rewilding bees in trees, pesticide control, ecosystem regeneration, and activism. Speed BEE Talks showcase several innovative projects, while an art exhibition and ancillary activities supplement the program.
