Beginners' Course - 2020 Course - booking now open
The next course will take place in April and May 2020
The course follows a course of materials provided by the British Beekeeping Association. More details can be found here: BBKA Examinations and Assessments.
At the end of the course the student will be capable of becoming a ‘hobby beekeeper’, knowing how to source bees, maintain a colony in a hive and extract their honey for sale, through the gaining of the following skills and knowledge;
The course will be held over seven weeks and consist of five 2 hour evening sessions (on dates to be decided) at Hopley’s Garden Centre, High St Much Hadham, and at least one weekend practical live session at the Association apiary.
The course cost (subject to review) is £65, which includes a course textbook, refreshments and use of protective clothing and associate membership of BSBKA. Membership can be upgraded when you begin to keep bees.
Even if you don’t intend to keep bees, you will have fun and enjoy learning about them.
Why not come as a husband and wife team and revive the fun of doing things together. Or bring the kids; Juniors are welcome and we only charge half price (subject to review) for the course plus membership (£35).
