Course testimonials:

  • Getting up close and personal with the bees. I would be keen to do the 2 day course.
  • handling the bees - heaps of great info - inspired to start my own beekeeping
  • Started the day with no knowledge or experience of Beekeeping. By the end of the course I felt far more at ease to start a hive in my backyard to help with pollination and to harvest our very own honey. Thanks to our tutor Ben for sharing his knowledge and the opportunity to get hands on with an open hive. Thoroughly recommend this course to anyone considering a start in beekeeping.
