An introduction to beekeeping with Hannah Reeves, professional beekeeper, who manages the apiary at Tewin Orchard Nature Reserve.

This one day workshop will give you an overview of the craft of beekeeping.  The 5 hour course will begin by spending the morning learning the basic theory of beekeeping. This will include looking at hive products and tasting a selection of local honeys.

After a delicious lunch, the afternoon will be spent in the orchard’s apiary with a session of practical beekeeping. You will have the opportunity to have a go at inspecting a hive yourself and receiving a souvenir photograph.

This course will provide a basis of understanding of what is involved in becoming a beekeeper and whether this is a hobby you wish to pursue. Protective beekeeping suits and gloves will be provided.
