Charli and Tim reviewed: Mead Making with Chris Park and Bees for Development

"Had a lovely time with Chris in and around his home, collecting spring water, picking botanicals for the mead and of course making the mead from the honey. We found the talk on the mythology and history of mead especially fascinating. Though they were not active we also got to see several of his hives and the bees therein. Chris was a great host and teacher, was engaging and personable. The location was beautiful and also steeped in history. Would recommend to anyone interested in mead, regardless of their experience in brewing or bee keeping. "

Lisa Coward reviewed: Mead Making with Chris Park and Bees for Development

"Recommend this course for starting with the cultural history of mead as well as explaining that mead production is as much an art as it is a science and that the resulting mead is a very personal product."

Bees for Development responded:

" Thank you Lisa - we're glad you enjoyed the course!"

"Chris is a fountain of knowledge and an excellent teacher. The group was wonderful, we sang and skepped all day long. The lunch was amazing too. Would strongly recommend this course to anyone wanting to try their hand and learn more about this ancient and beautiful craft."
