Beekeeping Courses for 2014.
We are pleased to announce that the response to the Beekeeping Courses has been overwhelming even to the extent that all the courses offered in October are all fully booked. The calibre of students at all course levels has been of a very high standard, with most of them already keeping bees of their own and showing excellent results. The most popular course has been the beginners basic beekeeping and 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 have to be restricted.
The October courses are for advanced beekeeping and have entry requirements.All the October courses are fully booked and wait listed.
Should there be sufficient interest in one last basic beekeeping course for this year, we will endeavor to put one together, just contact us if you are interested.
You ongoing interest in bees and beekeeping is always appreciated.
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

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!

Class sizes are restricted due to the practical nature of the course and courses could be modified to suit differing levels of expertise.
