Hugely popular, our Beginners Course is perfect for both non-beekeepers who are looking to become beekeepers and those who started with their first colony during the last twelve months without having completed a course.
It runs for seven weeks, with each evening class covering a different aspect of beekeeping from bee biology, pests and diseases, through to making frames, choosing the right hive and the best spot for your own apiary.
Practical apiary training will be at our local apiary, and each new beekeeper will be offered a bee buddy or mentor.
We recommend beginner beekeepers buy a copy of the Haynes Bee Manual.
