Spring has sprung, and my phone is ringing daily with enquiries from people wanting to learn about beekeeping, so it must be time to run our annual beginners course again.

Run over six weeks commencing 26 September, Tuesday evenings, 7-9pm, and we'll also fit in at least one apiary visit on a weekend as weather allows.

We'll cover everything you need to know to keep a beehive happy and healthy throughout the year, including hive style options, health and disease management, legalities, honey production and much more.

Whether you've already got a hive and just want to beef up or are just thinking about taking the plunge, come along and have some fun.

All hive types and methodologies/philosophies covered.... Theoretical, legal and practical.

Contact me (Deanna) to register - phone home evenings (06) 876 8852.

Registration required.

Cost: $50 per person/family.
