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.

If interested, email them for an enrolment form.

The event is being run by the Natural Beekeeping Group of Permaculture Victoria.
