Education and Training
Twice a year we run a Taster Day at our apiary for those who would like a general introduction to the world of beekeeping. The cost is £15 per person (or £20 for two booking together). Early booking is always advised. Very often people who attend our Taster Day sessions will sign on for the more comprehensive Beginners' Beekeeping Course (see details below).
Taster Days for 2017 will be run on
Beginners' Beekeeping Course
a year, through late winter and spring, we run our comprehensive
Beginners' Beekeeping Course which follows the BBKA Basic syllabus and
aims to instil confidence and knowledge in new beekeepers in order for
them to keep happy and healthy bees. The course is held at two venues -
the Castle Centre, Barnstaple to start and then moves on to our apiary
at Horestone. Tutors are all experienced beekeepers and we aim for
students to experience handling and understanding of bees in their
hives as much as the weather allows.
