Getting started or getting better with honey bees

In this one day workshop we cover the basics of beekeeping, and consider some of the decisions that a small scale beekeeper makes.

You will also gain some perspective and insight into how small scale and back yard bee keeping fits into the ecology of our food production.

Together we will open some of the Murrnong hives, and learn to recognise what we see happening in there.

This is the second of these workshops this autumn, after the first one, on Feb 21st, sold out. Here is a picture of the group dressed up and ready to head down to the hives. The calm warm autumn weather, with the bees busy foraging, made it an ideal and peaceful time to look inside.
