Beekeeping taster sessions 2023

Have you ever considered becoming a beekeeper? Would you like to find out more about bees and beekeeping?

Romford Beekeepers is running TWO beekeeping taster sessions in 2023 on either Saturday 8th July or Sunday 30th July.

If you’ve thought of learning more about bees and beekeeping, our taster session will introduce you to:

• honey bees, bumble bees, solitary bees, wasps;

• types of beehives, hive components;

• managing bees: essentials: basic tools, protective clothing;

• how to get started in beekeeping.

The session includes a live hive demonstration giving you the opportunity to get close up and acquainted with the bees (protective jacket & veil provided).

If you can’t make the dates, and you would like to know more about becoming a beekeeper, your local division will be able to help you with this.

Theory courses normally run outside of the summer months, while practical courses are held in early summer.

See What’s on or contact your local division to find a course near you.
