Growing local

I'm attaching a simple set of photos with measurements for anyone who wants to build their own hives.   This is just how I build a standard OATH hive.

Looks really good. Rhys is looking forward to building his next set

Okay - I changed the plan.  I used to put a bottom on the honey super.  It worked for me because I didn't harvest the honey.  I have now moved it to the middle box.  The middle box has both a bottom and a top now. Updated the text in the pic to reflect that. 



Important note about adding photos:

Always add photos using the "From my computer" option, even if you are on a mobile phone or other device.

Vetiver grass helps to stabilise soil and protects it against erosion.  It can protect against pests and weeds. Vetiver is also used as animal feed. (Wiki.)

GrowVetiver is a plant nursery run by Dave & Keir Riley that harvests and grows Vetiver grass for local community applications and use. It is based in Beachmere, just north of Brisbane, Australia.
