Bee Keeping Taster Day

Bee Keeping Taster Day

Sat 16th Sep 11.00am | £25

For people thinking about taking up beekeeping. We will be running four separate days on the following dates (this is not a four week course - each day is a self-contained unit which is repeated to allow more opportunities to attend).

The day starts at 11am and finishes at 4pm with an hour for lunch (bring your own or dine at the Grange restaurant on site). We will be giving you an overview of the basic responsibilities and commitments involved in keeping bees alongside the costs and where best to get your kit. You will have the chance to see inside a hive and experience the fascinating world of honey bee first hand. A full information pack will be given out for you to keep.

Cost: £25

This is not a substitute for a bee keeping course. It's an attempt to let you know what you might be letting yourself in for if you decide to take up bee keeping as a hobby!
