Sold out for this season, new course dates coming September 2022!
Our practical beekeeping course is a great way to learn the basics of hobbyist beekeeping. Both standard hives and Langstroth long hives (a waist height hive with no heavy lifting) will be covered. Casual fun learning environment without the pressure of formal learning assessments.
This course will be spread over 5 easy sessions between September 2022 and March 2023. Usually taking about 3 hours per session.
Over the 5 sessions you will learn about; hiveware and equipment, how to handle bees safely, your legal requirements for owning a beehive in NZ, disease control, home pollination and harvesting your own honey.
Each session will be hands on and practical where you will spend time going through live hives and having all your questions answered by our bee guru Reagan.
