Introduction to Beekeeping
Sun 19 July 2020
A one-day course which will teach you the principles behind beekeeping. You will learn about the various bee keeping methods, hives and equipment and how to care for bees and hopefully inspire you to become beekeeper yourself. Although many people attend our courses just to learn about and what to plant for bees.
The Introduction to Beekeeping course is run by highly experienced and passionate beekeeper Oliver Sinclair. He has been the Chairman of East Grinstead Beekeepers Association for the last five years and has led the organisation in improving the local community’s understanding of honey bees and mentored many avid beekeepers.
After learning about the lifecycle of bees and various theories on beekeeping, you will then be suited up for an open hive inspection. You should bring with you trousers, boots, long socks and leather or rubber gloves.
Delicious home cooked lunch is provided with produce from our Forest Garden. Refreshments are available all day.
