Introduction to Beekeeping Course 2020

Our successful two day “Introduction to Beekeeping” course will be run again in 2020 over the weekend of 25th and 26th April. The first day of the course will be held in the Brailes Village Hall whist the second day will be spent at our Apiary located just outside Brailes.

The course offers you the opportunity to spend the weekend in the company of our experienced beekeepers getting first hand experience and knowledge of:-

• Why keep bees?
• An introduction to how an individual bee and a colony of bees works.
• Choosing equipment and apiary sites.
• The beekeeping year and the products of the hive.
• Inspecting a colony of bees (bee suits provided)
• Assembling and manipulating hive equipment.

If your interest in beekeeping is stimulated by the course you can continue your beekeeping into the forthcoming season by joining Shipston Beekeepers. We aim to offer new members the opportunity to help manage bees in our training apiary, practicing under supervision the skills they will need to manage their own stocks of bees.

Course cost:- £55 per person, £90 per couple, inc refreshments.
