Biography

Pam Gregory took up beekeeping in 1975 after moving to a remote Welsh farm to pursue a self-sufficient lifestyle. She worked at the National Bee Unit (NBU) before going to Aberystwyth University where she gained a BSc in Ecology. She was a seasonal bee inspector from 1982 and, in 1995, became Regional Bee Inspector for Wales. A master beekeeper, she also held the National Diploma in Beekeeping. Having become interested in the use of bees for alleviating poverty in developing countries, Pam became Honorary Secretary of the, then, newly formed charity, Bees Abroad, in 1999. She taught beekeeping, honey marketing and business management in both Africa and Asia. She took an MSc in Natural Resource Management in 2003. Following Pam’s death in 2016, her book has been updated for this second edition to include the latest information on bee health problems and new threats such as the Asian hornet. Pam is survived by her husband John, seven children and (at the last count), 11 grandchildren and five great grandchildren.
