Wow what a wonderful turn out for the last of our Beginners Beekeeping Courses 2011. It was fully booked and the weather was fantastic! The Sunday practical hands on beekeeping day was perfect, sunny and warm! The open air BBQ, sitting in the orchard of Bee Heaven Farm was ideal.
James our veteran beekeeping course instructor said,” The students were wonderful, a real delightful mix from all walks of life. They were all really interested in finding out about what it takes to keep bees, and I am delighted to say they all passed with flying colours! Not one of them were intimidated by the 30 beehives on site with 60,000 bees per hive. They jumped right in after I showed them the proper way to open and operate a beehive. It was a splendid weekend and they will all make really great beekeepers, while helping to support our UK bee population. Well done to you all!”
One of the students emailed us:
I wanted to say how wonderful the course was. I never expected to learn so much in such a short amount of time. The course was fun, informative and, best of all, taught by someone who has a clear passion for what he teaches. James, it was awesome! Thank you so much for everything!
