Social Learning Processes and Nature-Culture Relations of Commercial Beekeeping Practices as Small and Medium Enterprise Development in Zimbabwe

  • C Masara


This paper explores social learning processes and nature-culture relations in a context of transition from traditional to commercial beekeeping in Zimbabwe. The contours of social learning provided by Wals (2007) are used to probe the learning processes in the social interactions shaping an emerging community of commercial beekeepers and their small and medium enterprise development practices. The paper illustrates how the practice of engaging communities in participatory expansive learning research could benefit from more refined tools for understanding the open-ended contours of social learning interactions in relation to nature-culture relations.
