BEEKEEPING INTRODUCTORY COURSE 

Are your fruit trees not yielding sufficient fruit? Is your garden short of bees? Do you want to contribute to the environment by having a bee hive in your back yard? Then come along to this introductory course which will cover basic beekeeping skills from building a hive from kitset to managing a hive and recognition of diseases and how to treat them.  This  7 week course consists of week one  an orientation night of euipment used in Beekeeping.  Week 2  is a practical night making up bee boxes and frames when students will need to bring a battery drill with a square drive bit and a hammer.  Following on from this will  be 2 lessons on disease recognition.  There will be two field trips to work live hives plus a night on products of the hive and candle making with beeswax.  You do not need your bee suit for the field trips which are held weather permitting on a Saturday from 11 am to 1 pm but if you have one then bring it with you.
