Whether it be water or energy efficiency, or urban beehive management, Henry House Hydrotherapy Centre have it nailed! A great synergy has been created by Karen’s long-term passion for ecology and her engineering background.
Karen and Rolf have resolved the high demand for water and energy in their home and business by very creatively reducing consumption, saving money, recycling water, not using mains water, plus generating income and energy from rooftop solar. Find out how!
From their first wild swarm, which began producing honey within 6 weeks, they now have two operational beehives. From these peaceful and productive bees in the first swarm, a second queen was raised to establish another colony. So far, the two hives have produced over 50 kg of prize-winning honey. Bees need water, so the hive is right next to the pond populated by dragonfly, damsel flies, frogs and toads.
Rosa, Karen’s 9-year-old granddaughter will be on site on Saturday to answer your questions and help you have fun with queen-bee dress up. Re-Gen Builders and Buzz Eco Electric (see ad on P2 of event brochure) will also be there to discuss retro insulation, sustainable building and EV hook-ups.
