European Tour wrap-up
Stuart Anderson visits the Kingston Beekeepers apiary in London
Stuart Anderson, co-inventor of the Flow Hive had a fantastic time in Europe from April-June 2017, visiting a string of apiaries across the UK and Italy, and presenting at events in London, Berlin, Barcelona & Milan. We learnt so much from each region’s diverse and rich beekeeping knowledge, and we hope you met Stu along the way. View our new Flow in Europe webpage here.

Stuart had the pleasure of meeting with each of the beekeeping associations shown on this map and supporting them to receive a Flow Hive or UK National Flow Super to use in their apiary. Look here for a beekeeping association to share your Flow beekeeping journey with. If your local beekeeping association is not on the map and would like to be, check out our Beekeeping Club Support Program.

Touring with a Flow Hive Classic in Western Red Cedar and the UK National Flow Super, Stuart met new and experienced beekeepers to answer their questions and give those unfamiliar with Flow technology a chance to see how it works for the first time.
“This tour was a chance to understand how well the Flow system was understood, what we could do to make it better and for me to learn about the methods of beekeeping in Europe and the UK. I am indebted to the many people who took the time to explain their beekeeping approach, the obstacles they face and ways in which they have been creative in overcoming those obstacles.”
“Beekeepers from all walks of life went out of their way to ensure that the talks, accommodation, etc went smoothly wherever we went. It was a tremendous treat to meet these people and I feel so grateful for their generosity.” Stuart Anderson, Co-Inventor & Director

‘What a lovely man and story. It was great so hear how tenacity can bring good designs. I hope Stuart is successful.’
'Thank you for the talk by Stuart yesterday - what an inspirational man! I loved hearing his story and the hive is amazing. I am seriously tempted to get one … ’
A big thank you for arranging for the Flow presentation on Saturday afternoon at our Apiary. Now we have seen the Flow Hive for ourselves and even been able to quiz the inventor too, with all our … questions. A great afternoon was had by all.
