Attend a workshop being offered by Gunther Hauk on Biodynamic Beekeeping in Chicago

October 15, 2-5 pm

Chicago Waldorf School Physics Lab
1319 W Loyola Ave

Suggested Donation: $25
RSVP’s: In advance to bgleichauf@chicagowaldorf.org

Gunther Hauk, master beekeeper will speak about methods of wholistic beekeeping that turn the beekeeper’s role from that of manager of livestock to one of creator of bee habitat. The primary goal must be to enhance the health of the bees, not to harvest honey.
There will be practical work involving the Chicago Waldorf School hives.

Gunther Hauk is an educator of longstanding and a biodynamic gardener as well as a beekeeper for over 50 years. He co-founded the Pfeiffer Center in Spring Valley, NY in 1996 where he developed a successful biodynamic part-time training and taught at Sunbridge College. Since then, he has given many organic beekeeping workshops all over the continent. In 2006 he co-founded the not-for-profit organization “Spikenard Farm, Inc.” with his wife. They are now located in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia . Working to help save the honeybee is dear to his heart.
