Beekeeping for Beginners, Assington Mill, Sudbury
This course is an introduction to the subject, with the emphasis on the practical aspects of bee-keeping, and is designed for beginners. We will have a look at some beehives but not the inhabitants on this occasion. Today is a theory-only day (but Simon Cousins manages to make quite a dry subject funny).
It will give you a very good idea of whether you want to keep bees or not. Book now via this link:
The course will cover the history of beekeeping, the inhabitants of the hive, life cycle, equipment, location of hives, hive stocking, collecting a warm, bee space, how to mark the queen and clip her wings, swarming, hive products, harvest, extracting, bottling and marketing, and stings!"
