Building on our workshop series initiated by artist Moza Almatrooshi, ‘This is an Edible Gold: Advanced Beekeeping’ is a hands-on intensive led by local apiary Beeways. The two-day workshop starts with practical methods of beehive construction, and includes step-by-step instruction on urban beekeeping.
Participants will assemble their own Langstroth hives, which they will be able to take home ready to welcome their bees.
Beeways is a local apiary registered in the Ministry of Environment, Water and Agriculture housing 1,200 beehives and licensed by the Ministry of Commerce for beekeeping and honey production. Beeways follows a nomadic method of beekeeping, seasonally transferring their hives across Saudi Arabia to ensure that their bees reach the greenest pastures. As part of their winter trail, Beeways are making a temporary home out of Hayy Jameel for a selection of their hives, to educate community members about the importance of bees and the wonders of beekeeping.
