Taster Days

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
  Sunday June 25th
Sunday September 3rd

Beginners' Beekeeping Course

Once 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.
The Beginners Course for 2018 sill start at the end of February and run weekly until May. |Precise dates are still to be finalised and cost will be in the region of £140 (still to be confirmed) which includes full Membership of North Devon Beekeepers. The course also books up quickly months ahead of the start date. If you're interested, contact the Education Officer for more details.
