Whatever type of beehive you have, or would like to have, the principles of beekeeping are the same. The Art & Science of Beekeeping is a two-day course covering what we know about bees and how to look after them. The Science of beekeeping will cover bee genetics, biology, pests and diseases. The Art of beekeeping involves actual hands on experience working with these animals and constructing the frames and hives for them to live in.
Course attendees will get priority bookings for honey bee colonies to start their new adventure. Ideally, you could bring a hive of friendly bees home with you after finishing the course.
Catering and mead tastings included at Win’s Creek Meadery.
Courses are limited to 10 people, so best to book early. Four dates are offered:
