Our ever popular Introduction to Beekeeping short course is back!
Beekeeping is a very rewarding hobby and this 6 week course is the perfect introduction to caring for your own bees. Honeybees have a fascinating natural history and who better to learn from than the Birmingham & District Bee Keepers Association.

The sessions are delivered over six weeks and they are classroom based. Sessions take place on Monday evenings between 7.30pm – 9pm, starting from Monday 5th February.
