Beekeeping training courses...

I run two training courses each year at my Yalding location. Each course runs over a seven week duration on Friday nights between the end of February and the start of April. 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

7. Feeding and winter preparation

8. Diseases

9 & 10. Practical bee handling (dates are subject to weather, probably Saturday afternoons)

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

For further information please ask for details.
