Suitable for beginners, and ideal for the backyarder, this two-day event is designed to provide participants with the information they need to start natural beekeeping with confidence. It will cover such subjects as: boxes, equipment, legislation, choosing the location, ongoing maintenance and harvesting. It will also hive manipulations and some honey tasting.
After the course, for participants who do not currently have a hive, the course organisers may be able to provide bees for your hive at no cost during swarming season.
