Introduction to Backyard Beekeeping
Sat. 12 November 2016, 9:00 am – 4:00 pm AEDT
Join Kelly from Urban Hum to discover the amazing world of bees. This one-day beekeeping course will get you started on your journey to becoming a beekeeper. The course will be located at a beautiful biodynamic farm, Macquariedale Organic Wine, Urban Hum's first rural satellite apiary.
Learn about bees and bee behaviour. Find out what type of hive suits you. Learn the basic skills needed to care for your colony and the tools you will need. Look inside a working beehive. Experience honey extraction and taste honey from different hives.
The course will consist of a morning theoretical session with time for questions and answers. In the afternoon we will experience hands-on activities including wiring and waxing frames, honey extraction and suiting up to look inside a hive.
The course fee includes morning tea, lunch and the equipment you will need for the day.
The day will finish with complimentary Cheese and Wine Tasting from Macquariedale Organic Wines
