Date: Saturday 22 April 2017 - Venue: Forest of Dean, GL17 9PA - Duration: 2 Days

A weekend Course on sustainable beekeeping. We cover the management of bees, and natural ways to take care of them. This Course is suitable for those with or without previous knowledge of beekeeping.

Topics:
Meet the bees - a hands-on look at a honey bee colony
The natural lifecycle of honey bees - basic bee biology and ecology
The relationship between bees and flowers - pollination, plants and biodiversity
Keeping bees healthy - what to do and when to act
Making and building low-cost hives - practical demonstration
Warre People's Hive, top-bar hives, frame hives: we look at each and help you chose which system is best for you.

"It was friendly, accommodated various levels of knowledge, and offered a vision of sustainability in beekeeping without being prescriptive. I think we were all inspired! The balance of theory and practice was just right".  Past participant.

Cost: £195.00
