Chorlton (BERB)

Learn Beekeeping in Chorlton

Places are on hold at the moment, please let us know if you are interested.

The apiary is situated behind the Co-Op on Barlow Moor Road in Chorlton at the 'Riverbank Community Garden' and has a maximum of 6 learners and 6 hives.

Following on from theory sessions between January and April, you will meet your trainer and fellow learners at "The Container" every Tuesday at 18:30 where you will start to build and paint the hives ready for 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 small apiary. This includes ensuring the container is tidy and equipment is stored safely, cutting the grass around the orchard, weeding and chopping back brambles along the apiary fence.

If you would like one of the 6 places at this apiary site, use the papal button below to enrol. Payment will only go through if there are places available to prevent overbooking. If you have any questions, please use the contact form.
