Want to review this course?

Having already read "Keeping Bees with a Smile" and "Keeping Bees in Horizontal Hives" it was a no-brainer when I learned that Leo Sharashkin would be giving this course in the UK in November. The course lived up to all my expectations and his explanations of techniques for sustainable beekeeping were clear and thought provoking. In particular his treatment free approach will be my mission for 2018 with my colonies.

If this course is repeated in the future it would be beneficial to hold it in the active beekeeping season so practical session(s) in the Apiary could be used to reinforce the subject matter. I would recommend this course whole-heartedly to any beekeeper with an open mind.

Excellent presentation by Leo Sharashkin. He gave time for people to ask questions and take notes which was needed due to the amount of information provided. I will certainly be applying as many of the sustainable methods he suggested as I can.
