Beekeeping – A Taster

with Michael Netherton

Booking Page

This practical, hands-on course will cover:

  • working safely with bees
  • how a bee-colony survives, and how to help them live at your place
  • what’s inside a bee-hive: we’ll open some living hives and look around inside
  • bee diseases and pests, and how to deal with them
  • how to extract your own honey, and
  • useful bee books & bee equipment, and where to get them.

This is what you’ll get:

  • confidence that you can easily look after your own hive (or two)
  • a basic understanding of how to keep bees safely
  • some honey that you’ve extracted yourself
  • the ability to contact Michael and ask as many bee-questions as you like.
