Beginners

Each year we run a Beekeeping for Beginners course. The course is run by experienced beekeepers, covers all aspects of beekeeping, and includes several apiary meetings where you can get hands on with a colony of bees. This is an excellent way to learn about beekeeping and meet others who share your interest.

The beginner’s course includes 9 indoor lectures from January through April as well as 6 outdoor apiary demonstrations throughout the Summer.

No prior beekeeping knowledge is required.  Beginners are encouraged not to invest in any equipment until completing the course.  Protective suits will be provided at the hands on demonstrations.

Details of the 2021 course will be issued in due course.
