Everyone has their own place they go to when they need to redet their mind. Somewhere that disconnects the noisy curents running through their head and enables them to pause, to be still. It might be the summit of a hill or mountain, the bank of a river, or the wonder of woodlands. For me it's the sea - the sounds, smells and breezes blow away my overheated thoughts and cool nerve and endings. We celebrate the sea this issue and its power to inspire, invigorate and comfort. As well as the coast, we champion the countryside, exploring the world of beekeeping. Through beeswax and honey, bees provide so much that soothes us, and observing their routines can become a meditative process. In cities, too, we can provide plants to…


Look deeper in to nature and you will understand everything better. Summer is the time to celebrate the countryside – in particular, the gentle industry of bees. We hear the stories of four beekeepers, find tasty ways to use local honey and discover the Rivers of Flowers that support pollinators in our cities. Then we’re off to the coast and the tang of salty air. Why does the sea have such an incredible pull and why is sea swimming such a joy? We tune into the lull of the Shipping Forecast, plus find beautiful artwork to add a splash of coastal chic to your home Illustration by Becki Clark, beckiclark.com. Quote by Albert Einstein…

hive minded

Sociable, indudtrious, threatend - the humble bee deserves care and respect. Kate o'Sullivan meets the beekeepers making a difference With their gentle, droning buzz the soundtrack to a peaceful afternoon in the garden, it sounds rather dramatic to say that bees are key to human survival. But beyond providing the simple pleasure of honey on hot toast or the gentle light of a beeswax candle, their work as pollinators is esssential. “Honeybees are so important to the overall balance of life on our planet,” explains beekeeper James Hamill. “They alone carry out the majority of cross fertilisation of plants, ensuring the food chain exists. Without them the whole of the eco-system would fail.” So it’s perhaps easy to see why beekeeping is becoming so popular, as we become aware of how much…

THE HOBBYIST BEEKEEPER Seeking the advice of other a piarists gave Jeni Hewlett the confidence to set up her own hives, despite early set backs… Chester-based Jeni runs her own creative business with her partner, Andy, and in her spare time she grows her own produce. Beekeeping felt like a natural progression from this, especially as her father kept bees when she was a child.

Her first attempt at beekeeping wasn’t a success, however, and it was only when she joined a local group that things came together. With the help of these new friends, she grew to understand bee behaviour, find…

Finding a local source is a great way to cut down on your food miles while also supporting your local beekeeping community.
