Hello, and welcome to the Wayward Bee blog and website!
My name is Jennifer Moore, and I live in rural East Sussex. I work on a number of collaborative projects with schools and community groups, give talks to groups and societies, and am always keen to make new connections to promote sympathetic beekeeping, and champion the role of the honey bee in encouraging good practice for all pollinators and wildlife. I also offer an on-site hive check and ongoing mentoring service for those who want some hands-on help. Although I am not offering Introduction to Beekeeping Courses, I am happy to run a bespoke course for you so please email me for details.
I now have a Patreon site for those wanting to stay in touch with more directional learning: Become a Patron! All my educational provision is now directed through my Patreon as this enables me to support my beekeeping contacts and keep the information up to date and available to all.
I also have a vlog about Wayward Bee: “The Shawpits Diaries” here if you would like to ‘meet’ me and find out what goes on here.
I have a background in agriculture, natural history, ecology and education, and I have been keeping bees and chickens here since 2009. I am also a keen artist, photographer, writer and gardener, and the hives and hens have featured in a number of magazines and promotional articles.
I am also an illustrator and have published a range of birdwatching logbooks. My art website is here.
Oh, and I do enjoy baking cakes…
