This is a one day Introduction to Beekeeping course, which takes you from complete novice to someone who has the knowledge to begin this wonderful and rewarding hobby. It is also suitable for those who have had bees for a short time and want to gain some more experience.
On this course we cover:
The life of the honeybee
How to set up an apiary
The beekeeping year
Equipment you will need
Working with the bees
Products of the hive
The course includes a visit to the apiary to enable you to handle bees under supervision.
Please email us on the form above for available dates and we will send you details of the itinerary for the day. Please contact us if you have a specific request.
Please note that whilst we do our best to ensure that you do not get stung if you are aware that you have a severe allergic reaction to bee stings these courses are not for you as they all involve working with live bees.
If you will be redeeming a CraftCourses gift voucher on this course, the voucher code must be provided at the point of booking.
