Weekend Beginners Course - Awbridge - Romsey & District Beekeepers Association

Date: Saturday 12th May 2018 - Venue: Awbridge, Romsey, Hampshire, SO51 0HG - Duration: 2 Days

On this 2-day course you will learn about the honey bee colony and forage, seasonal management and inspecting bees, buying kit and setting up an apiary, the life-cycle of a honey bee, pests and diseases, swarming and other aspects of bee behaviour. 

At the end of the course you will have enough knowledge to help you make a start as a beekeeper, and you will know where to go and who to ask as you build on that knowledge and develop your skills. 

The course includes a visit to the bees, where we will open a hive in small groups so that you can see and handle bees.  We can lend protective clothing if you do not have your own. 

Light refreshments are included; please bring your own lunch.

Cost: £90.00
