Description

We will explore the issues with conventional beekeeping and the opportunities for more natural, sustainable and less intensive approaches. We will help you make choices based on a sound understanding of the issues. We draw on experience from the UK and Africa.

Topics include:

  • Lifecycle of the Honey Bee and how it guides us tounderstand the best beekeeping practices.

  • Bee behaviour and how to keep bees more sympathetically.

  • Bee diseases and how to keep bees more healthily.

  • Choosing a hive. We compare framed hives designs with others including Warre and Top Bar Hives.

  • Getting started. Where to get help, equipment and bees.

  • Apitherapy, how products of the hive can benefit humans health.

  • Suitable for those with and without beekeeping experience

All proceeds go to Bees Abroad beekeeping projects - relieving poverty in Africa
