“I saw people earning some money from selling honey. That got me interested.”
My Life as Beekeeper
Who belongs to your family / who is living with you?
I am staying alone.
How has bee keeping changed your life?
I have started beekeeping about 2 years ago. I have already earned some money from selling honey. I usually harvest about 75kg per year.
How do you provide a good environment for your bees?
Planting trees is my main are of focus in supporting my bees.
What do trees mean to you and how can they be protected?
Trees provide many good things. They influence rain and this additional rain is of high value to our farmers. My bees love trees because of the tree flowers.
What is the most important thing in your life?
I would like to buy a car.
What are your biggest challenges and how do you plan to overcome them?
One challenge is that I don’t have protective wear, and this makes harvesting risky. Pests are a constant challenge for my bees. I am also lacking sufficient containers for storage of the combs with the honey in the harvesting season.
What do like to do in your free time?
In my free time I love watching movies.
Which place would you like to see once?
I would like to travel to the US and visit New York city.
