Due to high demand we are running this year a further  ‘Introduction to Beekeeping’ course over the winter time. We keep the format of a blended setup, introduced during the Covid-19 pandemic, with Zoom meetings (3), recorded presentations in place and arrange then a visit to the Trainingsapiary for practical demonstrations then in spring 2022. This should give everyone interesed to start beekeeping plenty of time to work through the material and be ready for the start of the next season.

Honeybee Conservation Pack

“Honeybees are truly the gardener’s friend and are not the killer beast depicted in the cinema. If not for them
and the other species of bees, plant life would be reduced to mainly wind-pollinated grasses and trees, as
bees pollinate most of the flowering plants. Their value to food production is priceless as they pollinate many
of the crops grown worldwide…”
Interested in how you can help bees? We’ve produced a new, updated conservation pack to download.

For Association members only – Throughout the summer we carry out our seasonal management tasks on the colonies at Birnie. You are most welcome to come along and help out. Please get involved, your beekeeping association needs you!
