Spring Courses and Dates for Year 2019

Once again we were pleased to see a tremendous increase in the demand for Beekeeping Courses presented during 2018. The calibre of students at all course levels was of a very high standard, with most of the students now busy keeping bees of their own and showing excellent results. The most popular course was the beginners basic beekeeping course that was made up of six hours of instruction in the laboratory and four hours of practical application in our teaching bee yard. Protective equipment was always supplied for the Field Work. Due to the practical nature of this course, class sizes have to be restricted.
