Greetings from Spain
« on: January 18, 2009, 12:33:28 PM »
We live in Spain and are interested to be involved, again, in beekeeping in the Philippines. A lot of works needs to be done and can be done. In 1987 I conducted a feasibility study for small farmers. Main purpose was to see if eg Apis cerana can be held under economical viable technics. It seems that new technics have been developed with this bee. If any one wants to share experience with cerana and I am very interested.
I am also updating my list of beekeepers in the Philippines. I appreciate very much your reactions .

Kind regards , Aguadulce

welcome!  we had another active member from spain, but i have not seen him on for awhile.

More than that, they are unconcerned with the fortunes of their village, the safety of their streets, the fate of their church and its vestry. They think that such things have nothing to do with them, that they belong to a powerful stranger called “the government.” They enjoy these goods as tenants, without a sense of ownership, and never give a thought to how they might be improved.....

Hi and welcome, the more the merrier. It will be interesting to hear of any  differences in beekeeping between our country and yours.

There is another member in the Philipines who might be of more assistance with the Apis Cerana.  If you click on the members tab just below your name at the top of the page you can scroll though the entire membership and find those most relevant to your location or interests.
Welcome aboard.

Thanks a lot for the warm welcome. I have been in Canada a couple of times a long time ago. First to pick tobacco in Ontario and second for bumble bees. But that is another story.
I hope to learn more on rural beekeeping in this forum. People who have experience to work with low external input material but achieve acceptable results, especially in developing countries. Hopefully some of those technics I can use in the Philippines in the (near ) future.
I am looking at transfer of knowledge, use of simple methods to make foundation, processing honey after harvest, decease control with local medicines. etc.

Kathy, I looked in Abejaruco's profile.  The last time he was active was on November 23, last.  No clue what he is up to, probably just busy with life, smiling.  Cindi
