Would you like to find out what beekeeping is all about? Not sure how to get involved or how to get started?

Our Taster Day on Saturday 9th August 2017 is aimed at anyone interested in starting beekeeping or a chance to discover if this wonderful hobby is for you.

This one day introduction to beekeeping will be led by experienced local beekeepers and will cover:

  • Becoming a beekeeper
  • The life cycle of a colony of bees
  • Opening up a beehive and looking inside
  • Question and answer session

We will provide the beesuits.  You just need to bring your wellington boots and a pair of washing up gloves.
