This course is for those who are seriously interested in taking up beekeeping. It aims to provide sufficient information about bees and beekeeping for the beginner in readiness to work with bees. The course addresses how best to care for the bees, the equipment needed, the year's tasks in the apiary, extracting and preparation of honey products and responsibility to the public. There will be no live bees on the course. 

Later in the year participants will have the opportunity to visit an apiary to look into hives with an experienced beekeeper and gain some hands-on experience with bees.

Several pubs and cafes nearby serve food if you do not wish to bring your own packed lunch (tea, coffee & biscuits provided).
