Education and Courses
Here at Weald Place we want to encourage as many new beekeepers as possible, so we are offering weekend courses in beekeeping. Over the two days you will learn all you need to get started with bees. We will show you how to handle your bees, how to recognise and treat disease, swarm management and control, how to build a hive and a little of the natural history of the honey bee.
We will also be arranging specialist courses, with guest lecturers in more advanced beekeeping, candle making and such like. Course titles to be announced, along with dates, over the next couple of months.
