Rural women take up beekeeping

A SERIES of workshops on beekeeping has stirred the interest of a group of rural women who plan to start their own business and help their families.

Ba Rural Beekeepers Association executive officer Salochana Sharma said the workshops were attended by unemployed women and men.

"They learn more about the basic structure of beekeeping and what to expect if they venture into this field," she said.

"During our last workshop, we had 23 participants who have been carrying out beekeeping in their residential lots."

Mrs Sharma said honey production had been a little slow in the past couple of weeks because of the weather.

"The wet weather that we are experiencing makes it hard to harvest a lot of honey but production is slowly picking up," she added.
