Are you fascinated by the art of beekeeping and keen to gain the skills required to start your own hive?
In this full day workshop, expert beekeeper Claire Brown will share the knowledge and skills required to get you up and running as a confident, successful backyard beekeeper.
You will put on protective protective beekeeping gear to look inside the hives to see the day-to-day life of the fascinating European honey bee, Apis mellifera. You will have the opportunity to look at the way honey is stored in the hive, see worker bees and drones in action, see bee larvae in their protective cells, and if you’re very lucky, we might even find the Queen Bee! You will learn the practical skills necessary to calm the hive using smokers, lift frames, maintain the hive, and harvest honey.
