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, diseases, hive management, the role of the different types of bees, and how to use a smoker.
After the course, for those that need it, the course organisers may be able to provide bees for your hive at no cost during swarming season.

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