The Beekeeping workshop is a 10 hour course spread over two days for adults over 19 years old and will include a mix of discussion in the classroom and demonstration in the  apiary.

The course aims to introduce participants to the way beekeeping involves working with the bees’ natural instincts and how bees provide humans with a useful indicator as to the health of our environment.

Participants (properly suited!) will spend time examining bees close-up and identifying some of the aspects of bee behavior we will have discussed in class including:

  • Lifecycle of the individual bee
  • Lifecycle of the honeybee colony
  • Bee cooperation and communication
  • Requirements of the honeybee colony
  • Beekeeping as a collaboration
  • Examples of beekeeping methods, techniques and equipment.
