Nyasumi, GHC's tenth village, is our first in Nyamira County. We began this CHEC in October 2022 and this is our largest club with 286 members! The Nyasumi apiary will eventually house 140 hives and the beekeeping group just finished building our largest apiary to date. We trained 28 apiary managers from this club and each one is responsible for its own sub-group. All sub-groups will be responsible for maintaining, inspecting and harvesting 5 hives.
The flora in this village is lush and plentiful, full of flowering trees, with a small river sitting beside the apiary. We have high hopes for this apiary as the environment is perfect for bees. The hives haven't even been placed in the apiary, and bees have already colonized 10 of them in a matter of weeks!
