I am a philosopher specialized in philosophy of mind and language. In particular, I am interested in the nature of consciousness, and the way in which we experience and interpret the world. I started my studies at the Central University of Venezuela in 2006, where I obtained a bachelor’s degree in philosophy (2011) and a master’s degree in logic and philosophy of science (2015). In 2012, the university offered me a position as a professor of philosophy and I taught several courses there until 2017, when I enrolled in a PhD program at the University of Genoa, Italy. I have also published several papers in philosophy journals and participated in various international events. In 2020, while writing my PhD thesis, I realized that I had been immersed in philosophy for too long and decided to use my experience to rejoin the real world. In my years studying philosophy, I have learned many things, but the most important is that the world is what we make of it, there is not ultimate truth, no final word. We create our reality. Knowledge has somehow separated us from others and nature, perhaps it can also reunite us. Although I was born in Venezuela, my family is a blending of different nationalities and traditions. I have lived and studied in different countries, which are all part of who I am and what I want to be. My actions define me, not my nationality or my origins. I do not believe in borders or limits; they are only in our minds. The sensation of not belonging can be liberating, once we realize that, by not belonging somewhere, we belong everywhere. I speak three languages (Spanish, English, and Italian) and I enjoy learning from other cultures, as well as transmitting the values of my own. I also enjoy music, sports and nature.

Les abeilles font partie de notre famille depuis 1978, quand Marie-Claude Dupuis et Claude Desrochers font l’acquisition de leur première ruche à Ferme-Neuve dans les Hautes-Laurentides. Au fil des années, ils ont su nous insuffler le désir de reprendre le cheptel familial et de créer les Miels d’Anicet au tournant de l’an 2000. L’aventure pouvait commencer. Qui sommes-nous? Des fous furieux du miel, des artisans de la terre, des épicuriens, des curieux qui considèrent le métier d’apiculteur comme un mélange parfait entre l’entomologie, la biologie et la botanique. Mais encore, un couple qui adore leur métier, les abeilles et la bonne vie en bonne compagnie. Né dans une ruche, Anicet voue un amour profond à cet insecte fantastique et cette science qu’est l’apidologie. Il est aussi habité par le désir de contribuer à la survie des abeilles en renversant naturellement leur taux de mortalité par la sélection et la reproduction de reines rustiques adaptées à leur environnement. Au quotidien, il veille à la santé de nos colonies et fait rayonner son expertise à l’international afin de faire avancer la science apicole. Au-delà du miel qu’elle produit, l’abeille joue un rôle essentiel de pollinisatrice et de gardienne de notre environnement. Habités par un amour indéfectible envers ces gardiennes de notre biodiversité, nous plaçons leur survie au cœur de notre pratique d’apiculture. C’est pourquoi nous explorons les quatre coins de la planète, avides de mille et une découvertes gustatives, soucieux de poser des gestes significatifs et d’acquérir de nouveaux outils de perfectionnement. De retour à Ferme-Neuve, chaque expérience teinte à sa manière notre façon de créer. Élevage de reines avec génétique rustique, production de miels sauvages de grande qualité, développement de produits gourmands et corporels, restauration saisonnière : toutes les occasions sont bonnes pour valoriser les produits de la ruche et faire rayonner la culture du miel au Québec. Bees have been part of our family since 1978, when Marie-Claude Dupuis and Claude Desrochers acquired their first hive at Ferme-Neuve in the Hautes-Laurentides. Over the years, they have instilled in us the desire to take over the family stock and create Miels d'Anicet at the turn of the year 2000. The adventure could begin. Who are we? Mad people mad about honey, artisans of the earth, epicureans, curious people who consider the profession of beekeeper as a perfect mix between entomology, biology and botany. But still, a couple who adore their profession, the bees and the good life in good company. Born in a beehive, Anicet has a deep love for this fantastic insect and the science of apidology. It is also inhabited by the desire to contribute to the survival of bees by naturally reversing their mortality rate through the selection and reproduction of hardy queens adapted to their environment. On a daily basis, he ensures the health of our colonies and promotes his expertise internationally in order to advance beekeeping science. Beyond the honey it produces, the bee plays an essential role of pollinator and guardian of our environment. Inhabited by an unwavering love for these guardians of our biodiversity, we place their survival at the heart of our beekeeping practice. This is why we explore the four corners of the planet, eager for a thousand and one taste discoveries, anxious to take meaningful action and acquire new development tools. Back at Ferme-Neuve, each experience tints our way of creating in its own way. Queen breeding with rustic genetics, production of high quality wild honeys, development of gourmet and bodily products, seasonal catering: all occasions are good to promote beehive products and promote the culture of honey in Quebec.

The Natural Beekeeping Trust was formed in 2009 in response to the need for an alternative approach to the care of bees. The key aims of the trust are disseminate information about bee-centred, natural beekeeping, develop new understandings and ways of relating to the bee that work with the natural behaviour of the creature rather than the enforced and stressful behaviour seen in conventional, chemical-dependent, beekeeping. The Natural Beekeeping Trust is delighted to be collaborating with partner organisations in Turkey, Holland and Macedonia on a two-year international sustainable beekeeping project funded by Erasmus+. We will document existing practices that​ focus on sustainable and bee-centred husbandry during field visits in partner countries, and will develop online resources and training opportunities for beekeepers and farmers. The Trust is governed by the UK Charity Commission, with which it is registered as a not for profit organisation. We encourage attention to the real nature of bees, their nesting preferences, their forage needs and their all-encompassing purpose. We hope to inspire people to live in peace with the bees, be good hosts to them, guard them and grow for them, in all ways imaginable.

Join us as we escape the rat race of South East England and settle into farm life in Central Portugal. We are Ken & Gina and we started the OKportugal Youtube channel back in 2019 when we decided to leave the hustle and bustle of the UK for a quieter life on a farm in Central Portugal. We now live on an amazing 3.5 hectare farm along with our cats, Nanook & Mecho and our two dogs, DogDog and Mimosa. Our journey began back in the UK, in September 2019, where we sold our house, packed all of our belongings and drove across Europe to Portugal in our campervan Bob along with our animals. We moved into a lovely rental house, high up in the Serra da Estrela mountains, meeting many friendly and generous locals and spent the next few months searching for our dream farm. In December 2019 we moved into our dream farm during Portugal's worst storm in a decade. We have had many trials and tribulations along the way and have documented them all in our Sunday weekly vlogs for our subscribers to enjoy.

Villaggio dell’accoglienza (Welcoming village) is the answer for everybody has had anguishing experiences and is forced to live at the margins of society. It is an educational space that through the testimony of given life and laboratory activities allows a path to rehabilitation and re-integration. The production activities: Thanks to the wonderful area of Lunigiana that touches Liguria, Tuscany and Emilia Romagna they have developed activities connected to apiculture. Il Pungiglione have more than 1000 families of bees and hive products from organic agriculture (propolis, royal jelly, wax) and become a specialized pole able to provide complex services to farmers: wax factory for wax making and wax sheets, wood working that produce beekeeping equipment, consortium honey factory for all the activities connected to honey production and sale. In order to show the extraordinary Villaggio dell’Accoglienza social project Il Pungiglione offers to visitors a new hostel with restaurant and a educational farm agreement with Tuscany Region and many others authorities at national level. We work with respect for nature: all the production activities of the Village exploit alternative energy thanks to the photovoltaic system. Pungiglione’s products are organic, certified by Bioagricert authority. The jewel of the crown of the production is represented by Honey Dop of Lunigiana, the first in Italian honey that obtained the reward, the only one Bio-Dop&Supportive. Boceda was a dynamite factory, abandoned for many years until our arrival. In 1999 the remaining site dedicated to industrial production was composed by some old precarious buildings suffocated by vegetation. We cleaned and restored the buildings. From that period Il Pungiglione assisted a bloom of social recovery, both human and environmental, that we hope to carry on in the future with strength and determination.
