Beekeeping for Beginners - ONLINE Taster Session - May 15th 2021
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 from the comfort of your home for an ONLINE 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.
Approximately two weeks before the course date we will post to your home a selection of the honeys we will be tasting and discussing on the day. Please try and refrain yourselves from opening these until the morning of the actual course as we wont be able to resend these. A member of our team will also be sending you an email with a quick guide to "Zoom" , the software used to run the course, and some other guidance on the course itself.
Whilst we won’t be showing you live bees on 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.
We will email you a gift voucher if this course is to be given as a gift for someone.
Course location: ONLINE (via Zoom - basic guidance provided)
Time: 10.00am - 1.30pm
Terms and Conditions
We have high demand for our courses and put a lot of energy into organising them so that all involved enjoy the day. If you are unable to attend the course after booking and get in touch with us at least one month before, we will try to move you to another course date where possible. Please note: 25% of your course fee is non-refundable if you cancel your place over one month before the course date. I'm afraid that should you cancel your place less than one month before the course we are unable to refund your purchase.
