Nyamagesa, GHC's ninth village, is in western Kisii County, and close to Nyanturago Village. We began this CHEC in October 2022 and currently have 72 members involved in beekeeping and 8 fully trained apiary managers. The construction of the apiary was completed at the end of October and the Nyamagesa apiary will house 40 hives to start. The 8 apiary managers will be responsible for a sub-group and each group will receive 5 hives to manage.
The apiary sits in a very lush area, with an abundance of eucalyptus, grevillea and avocado trees. There is also a water stream nearby from which the bees can drink.
