I´m Isabell and the bees are my passion. I became a beekeeper six years ago because I'm totally fascinated by the bee colony's way of life and their amazing abilities. Once I started working with the bees, a whole new world opened up for me. I quickly understood that bees are more than honey: it´s unbelievable what such a small insect can produce on different and useful products like for example wax. But above all, I realised how important bees are for us humans and our environment. And because I am a teacher by profession, I wanted to pass on my knowledge of the bees to the children as well. Thus, I founded an apiary and a roof garden with beefriendly plants at my school in Hamburg, Germany. Now I am living here in Greece and I would love to share with you the wonderful secrets of the bees.

Where you'll be

We are meeting in the city center and are going to the lovely Anel Honey Park Garden little outside of Thessaloniki. It is a really relaxing and inspiring place. The air is filled with the buzz of insects and scents of flowers and herbs sprouting everywhere in the garden. After we have finished our program, you still have enough time to explore the park on your own.

This was a really cool experience for me. Isabell is a welcoming and friendly person and a real enthusiast. We had a lot in common and she told us many things about the bees and how they are organized and how many different products they are able to produce by themselves. This is a amazing first step into the world of bee keeping. Later on we took a look into a hive and the bees where as friendly as Isabel ;) and the most amazing part was the birth of a little bee and of course we where lucky seeing the queen!!! If u are interested in nature, bees and authentic people in Thessaloniki , I highly recommend you this bee keeping workshop. Thank you again Isabell for the good experience!

We had a wonderful time with Isabell and her bees. She has been a beekeeper for a long time and therefore has a good understanding when it comes to bees and beekeeping. Her experiences as a teacher also help to convey the information in an interesting and understandable way. She always had a competent and suitable answer to every question we had. We were so fascinated by the whole topic that we asked Isabell if it was possible to spontaneously produce a beeswax cream and she made it possible, thank you again for that! Oh and by the way: She speaks perfect English, Greek and German (and probably some other languages aswell :) ).
