This workshop will offer practical advice for those who want to have bees and for those who had bees and want to start again.
Beekeeping is like all of animal husbandry: it is a science and an art. This workshop will give you ample information not only about how to get started, but also a basic understanding of what is involved in today's beekeeping that will allow you to make decisions that are right for you in your personal situation: which hive type would be best for you,, what tools are needed, what is important for the bees' health, where to get bees and what to do initially when you get them.
