From the perspective of a ‘newbee’ i can say that Joan Weir is exactly the kind of mentor we all need as we enter into the exciting world of beekeeping. Joan brings a wealth of information however retains a great simplicity – and the thing i admire the most is the way in which she empowers decision making! A great trait to find in an ‘expert’ in any field – i must say. Joan’s philosophy inspires me to have a harmonious relationship with the bees and speaks to have reverence for the natural world!”

Joan is one of the most caring beekeepers and most effective bee extractors I know. Her quick response and rescue saved not only our lives, but more importantly, those of the bees.
