Our Beekeeping workshop is a one day workshop for adults, it will include a mix of discussion in the classroom and demonstration in the apiary.
The workshop 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.
