"What is necessary above all, is, that you are able to call a spade a spade" - Konfuzius

"Wundern muss man sich indes über die Nachlässigkeit der Menschen, die ihre Zeit mit Nichtigkeiten hinbringen, um Dinge aber, durch die sie für ihre Gesundheit und ihr Wohlergehen sorgen könnten, sich nicht kümmern." - Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz

Organic / Ecological Beekeeping

Get started keeping bees - simple and natural. Ecological beekeeping (wesensgemaesse Bienenhaltung) without frames and foundation; that means also without Bienenkiste. Further information can be found in our publications, online-magazine Apiculture, and it's supplement Apicultural Review Letters, press-releases and articles.

The intention of our certificate courses I-III together with the Club of Ecological Beekeepers is to establish a culture of organic / ecological beekeeping again in the world.

Help Save The Bees

Bee colonies can serve also as a model or standard. Bees live in harmony with nature; if the human being is working with the bees he is invited to do so as well. Bees live also in harmony with nature in certified apiaries of Centre for Ecological Apiculture, the only Institution in Germany where bees kept in top bar hives and allowed to draw out their combs themselves, in contrast to bees from beekeepers who need to get along with plastic combs in plastic hives, artificial wax or foundation, wire and smoke.

How can I help save the bees and other pollinators?

Do something for the endangered pollinators by planting beefriendly bushes, trees and flowers in your garden, by building nisting sites for solitary bees,

  • by adopting beecolonies. Apply for or donate a "Save Beecolonies- Bienenpatenschaft". The beekeepers of the Centre for Ecological Apiculture care about your adopted beecolonies. And you support with it training and research in the Centre for Ecological Apiculture.  Bienenhaltung. More...
  • by having a lunch with DI. Michael Thiele. The proceeds going to support the Centre for Ecological Apiculture and the bees. Have an interesting conversation with him on topics such as health and illness, beauty-cure, ecological beekeeping, arts, literature and philosophy! More...
  • by purchasing art works. A lunch with DI. Michael Thiele provides also the appropriate setting for an international exhibition of important art works from Michael Thiele and students. Those who applied for a lunch and who are lovers of the arts are invited to the "First Choice"-inauguration for VIP's and prominent persons. If there is a drawing or painting you like, you can purchase it. The proceeds going to support the bees. More...

Honey, Honey Comb,  Beeswax, Propolis, Royal Jelly - Bees Know All About It

Honey, comb honey, beeswax, propolis, royal jelly as it is produced by the bees - in apiaries where they are kept according the character of bees (specialities such as  comb-honey, run-honey, comb-honey with beebread / pollen and pure beeswax without residuals for kneading in kindergarten and for cosmetics or holistic therapies. Customers support by buying these products a "longlasting fertility in beekeeping" in contrast to success in artificial beekeeping for a short time.

If you are looking for a certified member apiary in your surrounding, please contact Centre for Ecological Apiculture


Food with Living Forces - No  Degerated Products

The production conditions need to fulfill the requirements for maintaining and supporting life forces instead of pushing them out by mineral fertilizers, pesticides or special processing techniques like ultrafiltration of honey (see also technical literature on honeyquality).

Organic And Bio-Dynamical Farming

Biological - dynamical farming is a kind of soil cultivation and animal husbandry, which includes not only material processes. Target is an actually sustained farming with a manifold landscape. Another important target is the conservation of the primordial seeds, of genetical resources - which excludes the use of socalled "crops modified by biotechnology".

No Genetic Engineering 

"Große Worte haben die Gentechnik von Anfang an begleitet. Der Sieg über den Krebs wurde in Aussicht gestellt, die Heilung sämtlicher Erbkrankheiten, die Lösung des Welternährungsproblems und noch vieles mehr. Nichts davon ist bis heute eingetroffen. Das Genom des Menschen wurde mit gewaltigem Aufwand entziffert. Wie es funktioniert, verstehen wir immer noch nicht." Frankfurter Allgemeine Sonntagszeitung 2014, Nr. 35, p. 47

"Alle Ameisen zusammengenommen wiegen mehr als die gesamte Menschheit. Trotzdem droht der Erde kein Überbevölkerungsproblem." Michael Braungart

Green and red Biotechnology in retreat, experts say there is a lack of safety culture among Biotech scientists and safety authorities. Why? The socalled dayfly-technology of agro genetic engineering is hardly able to get by one day without a scandal - also if some science journalists (ISAAA included) chant their horses. What other people call a scandal, among agro- biotechnologists it is everyday life: overspreading landscapes with genetically engineered Agrostis stolonifera or GE-rape manipulated by Monsanto, Bayer Crop Science. Because of high safety risk for consumers and environment Agro genetic engineering needs to be called a risk technology and is therefore to be flatly refused. Europe is not well known for it's risk technologies but for it's advanced technologies. Even ministries sometimes confuse the risk technologies with the advanced technologies (!)

Because of negative side effects and the truisms that crops modified by biotechnology are neither able to cure poverty, hunger and dependency in developing countries, nor prevent from rise in prices for uncontaminated food, Agro-genetic engineering is a no-future-technology - despite deceptive statements of ISAAA. Required are new strategies in agriculture and beekeeping. Our expert teams work together with companies, governments of countries and federal states, who have banned the cultivation of crops modified by biotechnology; they'll receive support by our expert centres

Natural Science, Arts and Philosophy

"Who is not able to grab the difference of the fantastical and imaginary, of what is according the rules of nature and what is hypothetical, is as a nature researcher in a bad situation. ... The thinking human being has the whimsical characteristic, that he to the place, where the not dissolved problem lies, gladly places a phantasy figure and fantastic stories when his imagination has gone wild, which he cannot get rid of, even if that problem is dissolved and the truth at the day. Who is accustomed to a wrong idea or misconception, will welcome each falsity." (Goethe)

Goethe's organicism; reading in the book of nature, as practised by Goethe around 1800, is a paradigm for a holistic approach to biology and understanding the organic world.
