Sorry - Our Live Taster course for this year (2021) is now full as the number of places available have been greatly reduced to meet the Coronavirus restrictions and safety guidelines
A ‘live’ course at Tilstock Village Hall over a weekend 3rd and 4th of July, restrictions permitting. The cost for this would be £80 per person, or £140 for a twosome*. N.B. We have discounted this rate as the course is later in the season.
* Will only receive one copy of handouts etc
**must be accompanied by a full fee paying adult
If you would like to take part in either of these courses please contact Alison Hine, the NSBKA education officer
The course will be both theoretical and practical, including a hands-on session at our Association apiary where you will see inside a beehive and handle the bees (weather permitting) [bee suits will be provided]
The course covers:
- Starting out in beekeeping
- Costs involved
- Beekeeping throughout the year
- Honeybee life, behaviour and colony
- Equipment, assembling hive parts
- Setting up an apiary and apiary safety
- Harvesting your honey and wax
The association draws its educational strength from its own pool of enthusiastic and highly experienced beekeepers and master beekeepers who volunteer to give up their own free time to teach others. This can mean timings and dates have to change in response to unforeseen circumstances and in such an event, alternative dates or a refund will be offered.
Physical Taster Location:
Tilstock Bradbury Village Hall
