Wilmslow (BEHQ)

Learn Beekeeping in Wilmslow

The apiary is situated at The Animal Sanctuary, Wilmslow and has a maximum of 10 learners and 10 hives.

Following on from theory sessions between January and April, you will meet your trainer and fellow learners at "The Pencils" on Mondays at 18:30 where you will start to build and paint the hives ready for the bees at the end of April. Once the bees arrive in 'nucs', you will learn to move these into hives and maintain the colony throughout the season.


As well as maintaining the bees, you will be required to support the maintenance of this apiary. This includes ensuring that the shed is tidy and equipment is stored safely, cutting the grass and weeding around the raised beds.
