Half-day Beekeeping Taster Course

AS9I3734-670x281

Sunday 25 June 2017    9:30am to 1pm     at Perivale Wood Nature Reserve    £40

Our half-day taster course is perfect if you are thinking about getting into beekeeping and want to see if it’s right for you, or simply if you are interested in bees and want to learn a bit more about these fascinating insects.

You will be welcomed with tea and coffee, then we will start by learning about the lifecycle of the honey bee, the different castes of bee, and why honey bees swarm.

After a break for tea and cake, we will help you to put on beekeeping suits, light a smoker and undertake an inspection on one of the hives in Perivale Wood, where we will see tens of thousands of worker bees busily going about their business, plus some drones (male bees), and possibly the queen.

We will end with some sampling of different honeys from around Ealing and around the world.

If you’d like to keep bees after taking the taster course, we recommend you join the association and come along the apiary for our member sessions on Saturday, as well as take our introduction to beekeeping course that starts in Feb/March 2018, and includes 6 weeknights of classroom-based theory sessions as well as several practical sessions in the apiary.
