The beekeeping club was born in may, 11th 2012. We brought back our first hive from Ouessant and started beekeeping with raw black bees. We had the pleasure to harvest honey at the end of september. Year by year, we adquired new skills that made us more confident. Now, we, students and teachers from Le Dantec high school, look after 5 hives all the year long. The apiary is located on the terrace of the library which is very convenient : a safe place, sheltered from north winds. We have decided to fight parasites like varroa with soft and ecofriendly methods (thymol, nettle broken leaves).
