Alessia Bolis, 41 years old. Every Saturday morning gives eight-week-long training courses in apiculture at the Hackney City Farm as part of the Capitalgrowth project. "When I started beekeeping I was working in a museum in Pavia, I'm a specialist in ancient history. I started in Italy and I love urban beekeeping as well as teaching. For me, it's also about teaching responsibility to people who are attracted by bees... It's fashionable today! Otherwise, the rest of the year I work for a company that helps commercial enterprises where my task is developing projects."
