September 9, 2017 – September 9, 2017
This workshop is intended for people who have an interest in keeping bees and would like some guidance as to what is involved.
During the workshop we will learn about The Honey Bee, its history and life-cycle and its use as a pollinator. We will also look at the Bee Hive, looking at types, sizes and their component parts.
Lastly, we will be guided through the equipment needed to keep bees and be given an explanation of the work involved in a beekeeping year.
This workshop is led by Tuppenny Barn’s Adrian Pert, who has kept bees for 7 years, and is a BBKA qualified beekeeper. Please note the workshop is not intended to enable participants to keep bees following the workshop, but will point towards local Beekeeping Associations who can help you undertake the next stage.
Tickets: £30 per person; information sheets are provided for you to take home.
