Beekeeping training courses...

I run a course at my Yalding Location. The course will run this year for six lessons (due to COVID and the beekeeping season pressure) there will be two lessons per week for three weeks. No previous knowledge is required, we cater for complete novices upwards.

My courses include:

1. Introduction – bees, types and life cycle

2. Getting started

3. Bee handling theory

4. Swarm control

5. Practical hive building

6. Honey, extraction, filtering storage and sale

Classes are generally from 8-10pm and a maximum of 20 per group, so please book early.

For further information please ask for details.
