A comprehensive weekend course in beekeeping taught by John Vendy (www.topbarbeehive.co.uk), aimed at those with some experience of natural beekeeping, or those with experience of other methods wishing to adapt to a more bee-centric system. To include swarm control, swarm baiting and capture, increasing colonies.

For more information and booking details telephone 07885408636

And if you have any questions, bring them along. If possible – weather permitting – we will spend some time with bees in one of the hives, so please bring suitable clothing; at least a hat and veil, or a beekeeping suit if you prefer (some simple smocks will be available to borrow for those who don’t want to commit yet).

Please Note: If you believe that you may be allergic (anaphylactic, not just redness and itching!) to insect stings please bring an Epipen, and bring this information to our attention when booking. Thank you.

The cost for the course is £100 if you wish to stay overnight on the Saturday. If coming as on the days only the charge is £80. Accommodation is shared and all food is vegetarian. 

Why is it less expensive than other courses around the country? We are an educational charity – a not-for-profit organisation – and try to keep all our prices as low as we can to just cover our costs, in order to make our courses accessible to as many people as possible.

Timings: Arrive Saturday morning around 8.30 am for tea/coffee. Each day will finish between 4.30pm and 5.00 pm
