As beekeeping becomes even more popular in recent times, the importance of some introductory knowledge becomes even more important prior to getting our honey bees.

This workshop is aimed at providing new beekeepers with knowledge that will help them with setting up their first colony of honey bees this upcoming spring.

We will be covering; equipment required, methods to purchase bees, swarming, potential pests and diseases (yes we will be talking about the dreaded Varroa mite…!) and also look at a few recommend flowering plants for our local area which are important nectar, pollen and propolis sources for honey bees.
