Preparing the field
After the rainy season, we will move the bee colonies to modern beehives. We started to organize the field where we will place those modern beehives, and hired some people from the village to prepare the soil to plant flowers:
- Surrounding the land, they turned over the soil and added some organic manure to fertilize it for the coming long stem flowers. These flowers will also work as an edgerow, to delimit the field and avoid the children to play too close to the beehives.
- After that, we will order the manufacturing of small shelters in order to protect the modern beehives from the rain.
