We have a comprehensive beginners’ course that will give you a sound introduction to beekeeping.

The course is suitable for people who have recently started beekeeping, are thinking of taking up the hobby or those who want a bit more information about beekeeping.

The course consists of indoor sessions to learn more about bees, equipment, methods and diseases. There are then opportunities for you to have hands on experience at hives belonging to other beekeepers.

If you decide to become a beekeeper then the association will offer you a beekeeping buddy to help you through your first year as a beekeeper.

Our next beginners’ course will commence on – Tuesday 22nd January 2019

Please contact the association secretary to register interest in our course as places usually fill quickly..
