Beekeeping at Trinity

A new student club has formed to learn beekeeping skills whilst at college.

A new colony of bees has been safely installed at college by ordinand Rob McDonald. A trained beekeeper, Rob is leading a new student club, the ‘Bee-Attitudes’. While college has played host to bees for a number of years, this is the first time Trinity has a college-owned and college-operated hive. Ten students, staff, and spouses completed an online beekeeping course run by Rob over the summer and are now getting socially distanced, practical experience working with the hive. A small crop of honey has been harvested with the majority left to get the bees through the winter. Another cohort of trainee beekeepers will be taken through the online course this autumn, ready to help in the spring. The goal is to create a self-sustaining community of beekeepers at Trinity who can then take their knowledge and enthusiasm with them as they follow God’s call around the country.
