Learn Beekeeping in 2019
Training starts in January with 12 weekly theory sessions to get everyone ready for the 2019 season. The theory is for anyone who is interested in learning what you can do to support bees, what it takes to become beekeeper and the steps you need to take to get through a beekeeping season with health bees and honey!
Practical training sessions take over the theory from April and continue for another 26 weeks. You will be alerted to swarms and be invited to collect and hive them in a quarantine apiary. You will learn valuable lessons most weeks and be able to respond as problems arise by treating, feeding and splitting when needed. You will be supported by skilled and experienced beekeepers to ensure that everything goes to plan.
