Are you interested in becoming a beekeeper but don't know where to start?
This workshop will give you an insight to the wonderful life of honeybees, how they work and how the 'design' of a honeybee helps it to carry out the tasks needed for survival. You will explore aspects related to the social organisation of a colony, communication, nutrition and reproduction.
This introduction will also look at how humans have used this knowledge and understanding to develop methods to manage a colony so that it can produce wax and honey in a sustainable way.
[This workshop does not equip you to become a beekeeper, but provides information to help you decide whether you might want to begin learning beekeeping]
