Beekeeping for Beginners Taster Session - 8th September 2018

£45.00

You might be toying with the idea of purchasing a beehive, but full of questions. Join a member of the London Honey Company beekeeping team for an introduction to those early requirements of this ancient craft and some honeybee titillation. 

We will cover basic honeybee and beehive matters as well as preparations for the following season; siting beehives, beekeeping equipment and honeybee stock are a few examples, as well as specifics on urban beekeeping. Whilst we won’t be opening bees at this session, after this event we would encourage you then to attend one of our more comprehensive days, as keeping honeybees in an urban environment requires careful and serious consideration and we can offer you guidance throughout the year and expand your honeybee knowledge. The session is held at our warehouse which is full of beekeeping equipment to familiarise yourself with.

WE CAN INCLUDE A GIFT VOUCHER FOR COURSES WITH ORDERS OF OTHER ITEMS. PLEASE SPECIFY IF THIS IS A GIFT.

Review:

'The introductory course provided a wealth of information, from the lifecycle of bees and the threats they face in today’s environment, to the care and maintenance of hives.  Thoroughly informative and pitched at just the right level for the complete novice……'
