A protective bee suit will be provided by the apiary.

Keeping a colony of bees is a commitment and hands on training prior to obtaining bees is advised. This course provides a practical introduction to managing a colony of bees safely and responsibly.

You will have the opportunity to work in small groups with an experienced tutor to inspect and manipulate your ‘own’ colony of bees each week and discover if beekeeping is for you.

There may be a chance to purchase a nucleus of bees from the association towards the end of the course (as available).

Please note that this course ideally follows the 10 week Theory Course so is suitable for those already secure with this knowledge.
