Learn about Bees

An Introduction to Sustainable Beekeeping

Sunday 21 September at Hawkwood Nursery

People are becoming increasingly aware of the issues around honeybees and their ecological importance. We all know they pollinate our fruits and vegetables but do we know the impact our Beekeeping practices are having on the health of the honeybee.

We will look at Beekeeping practice from Holistic perspective and seek to explore what a practice would look like if Bee health and Bee-centred design were at its core rather than honey production.

We will cover hive design, Warre management throughout the season, swarming honeybee health and spend time observing honeybees up close.
This course is suitable for those who have completed our intro to honeybee biology or those with an understanding of honeybee biology.
You will need: Good boots, clothes for all weather, paper, pens, a veil if you have one.

Cost: £35
