Beekeeping Courses for 2014.
We are pleased to announce that the first Basic Beekeeping Course for 2014 will take place on the 22nd and 23rd of March. The course is made up of six hours of instruction in the laboratory and four hours of practical application in our teaching bee yard. Protective equipment is supplied for the Field Work. Due to the practical nature of this course, class sizes are restricted.
Registration for this course will be opened on the 30th of January 2014.
The classes and courses that are offered each month starting in March and going through to November 2014, are grouped to allow students to select a class or classes according to their previous knowledge or expertise.
One of the many comments from the students
“THANK YOU FOR A WONDERFUL AND ABOVE ALL A PRACTICAL HANDS ON LEARNING EXPERIENCE , MY EXPECTATIONS WERE EXCEEDED BY FAR” Ryan W.
We are pleased to report that we have successfully run a Basic Beginners Course in which the practical component was adapted for wheel chairs. Added to this the BBC (Backyard Beekeepers Club) membership now exceeds 200 members, which is made up mainly of past students and researchers. It is indeed heartwarming to see and hear how this wonderful group has grown and progressed in their respective fields of expertise. Keep up the good work!
For more information, please contact us and let us know what course type you would be interested in. We will then forward a curriculum and registration details.
Class sizes are restricted due to the practical nature of the course and courses could be modified to suit differing levels of expertise.
