  1. Nice picture ! Thanks for the offer and contact Phil. I have sent you a message on Facebook.
  2. Hi again, Thanks for the answers. I can lift up 40kg boxes for one day but I am not sure my back want to commit to do it for a month... So thanks for the offer Alastair, but I will decline it. Philbee, if you have less heavy work to do in February or March or heavy work that can be shared, I would be happy come to help and to hear more details about your research trials ! How can I join you outside of this forum ? Cheers, Margot
  3. Hi there, Thanks for your answers and happy new year ! Grant, I have filled out the online form to get a tourist visa which allows me to stay for 3 months ; also I will be sailing and cycling during my trip to New Zealand, so I think it's fine for me to do one month of beekeeping as long as I am not getting any salary. But I can also check the working holiday visa modalities. James, thanks for your offer but for now I am planning to stay in the north island ; if I change my mind I will contact you to come to visit your apiary. Philbee, if I manage to go through the New Zealand immigration ;-), would you welcome a pair of extra hands on your apiary in February or March ?
  4. Hi Grant, I didn't picture this as working but more as sharing experience. So I haven't applied for a working holiday visa... But I guess I still could if the beekeeper who welcome me wants me to have one. Cheers ! Margot
  5. Hi there, I am a vet working at the bee disease surveillance network in New Caledonia and I am coming to the North island of New Zealand in February. I am keen on working for one month in a beekeeping operation to discover different beekeeping practices ! I am not an experienced beekeeper as in my work I focus mainly on the sanitary aspect of beekeeping (I only have one hive in my garden, so I am examining hives belonging to other beekeepers or to our network of sentinel hives more often than mine), but I am eager to get hands on and gain some more practical experience ! New Caledonia has a small and growing beekeeping sector : around 700 beekeepers and 12.000 hives. We do not have varroa but we do have problems with AFB and european foul brood as well... I would feel favored to practice beekeeping in a different environment as well as learn how you deal with varroa and AFB in NZ... I have put my email address in my profile, so please feel free to contact me directly ! Cheers, Margot
