This full-day course, 10am – 5pm, costs £100 and includes tea, coffee and snacks throughout the day.
The course will cover the basics for setting up your own hives at home. We will look at how to get your apiary established including finding the right spot, the equipment and sourcing bees. Learn about the bee’s biology and their behaviour so that you can read what is happening in the hive and keep your bees happy and healthy. We will consider different approaches to keeping bees and visit our working hives for practical experience.
