It  is open to all and principally intended for those who might be interested in taking up beekeeping and would like to know more about the craft.

    4. Products of the Hive
    5. Help! There is something wrong with my bees
    6. The Beekeeping Year
  • A visit to the ADBKA apiary to experience handling live bees, view equipment and to make up a hive frame. Duration about two hours.

A participation certificate will be issued and lecture material will be made available.
