We have been involved with training new beekeepers for many years, following the British Beekeepers Association ‘Introduction to beekeeping’ course. We can offer an evening course over several weeks (Spring or Autumn) or an intensive weekend course for small groups or businesses.
Get the buzz!
We offer honeybee experiences, a chance to wear the suit, learn a little of what is involved and open a hive at one of our apiaries, then taste some honey with a relaxing cup of tea.
We also provide illustrated talks about beekeeping, honeybees and planting for bees and other pollinators, usually (but not exclusively) between September and April, when we are not looking after our bees as regularly.
With 30 years of secondary school science teaching behind us, we can offer fun and informative sessions in school, tailored to various aspects of the school curriculum, for both primary and secondary schools. We can even bring along a (closed) observation hive for students to see a working colony up close. Full DBS certification.
We can cover all aspects from bee biology, pollination and crops, honey and wax as products, hive design and tools for older students, to identifying different types of pollinating insects, what bees do, learning the waggle dance and dressing up in beekeeping suits for younger students.
If you adopt a hive from us, we can provide your staff or clients with bee experiences between April and September – using your adopted hive. We can also provide illustrated talks about beekeeping, honeybees and planting for bees and other pollinators.
