If you are thinking about keeping bees, but don’t know where or how to start. If you live in the South Hams area why not enrol on our beekeeping course.
The course starts in January with theory lessons two evenings each month through to April, where you will develop a good knowledge of the equipment needed to keep bees. And a understanding of the social interaction of a bee colony and you part in its welfare. You will also learn how to reap the benefits of beekeeping by collecting and processing all that lovely honey.
In May we have a series of practical sessions at the branch apiary, where, guided by an experience beekeeper, you will learn how to handle the bees and equipment with care and confidence.
