TBKA Introduction to Beekeeping Course

« Back

Date: Mar 01, 2018

Venue: West Wales



Time: 7.00pm


The Teifiside Beekeepers' Association (TBKA) Introduction to Beekeeping Course is due to start on Thursday 1st March 2018.

There will be four theory session in Llangoedmor, Cardigan (Thursday 1st, 8th, 15th & 22nd March 2018 from 7 - 9 pm), followed by four practical sessions at the TBKA apiary near Coed-y-bryn, Llandysul (Saturday 7th, 14th, 21st and 28th April from 1 - 2 pm, weather permitting).

The aim of the course is to introduce the basic principles of beekeeping. In the theory sessions we will discuss: the lifecycle and behaviour of the honey bee; plants, pollination and products of the hive; practical management and equipment; honey bee health and disease; and how to keep your own bees. During the apiary sessions we will demonstrate some essential practical skills and you will have the opportunity to apply these and handle bees yourself if you wish.

The course fee (£50 single/£75 couple or adult & child) includes membership of the TBKA through to 31st October 2018, so you can continue to learn and gain support from fellow beekeepers if you choose to take things further.
