8th May 2014: A talk by Julian Lush about Bee–keeping in Saudi Arabia.
The lecture took place at the Arab-British Chamber of Commerce.

Julian Lush, Vice–Chairman of the British–Yemeni Society, is a longstanding member of the London Beekeepers’ Association. He has organised and led four visits by groups of British beekeepers to look into beekeeping in Arabian regions: they have visited Northern Oman, Egypt, Saudi Arabia (al–Baha province), and Dhofar, Southern Oman. He talked about the particular experiences the group had and the warm welcome they received when they visited King Saud University, Riyadh, and beekeepers in the al–Baha Province, Saudi Arabia.
