Beginners Practical Sessions
The Beginners Practicals are held at:
Green Farm, Twyning Green, TWYNING, GL20 6DF Click here for Google Maps
Please come with wellies or stout boots as you'll be walking through a disinfectant trough
Bring Marigold Gloves, you'll need these for handling bees
DO NOT bring your own bee suit, (unless previously agreed) - these are provided
Be aware of the weather, dress in layers - it can get chilly in the evenings and hot in a bee suit
We will start with a 'team chat' - this will be about bee related stuff, and no handouts so make notes if you want to
We will then do any maintenance required
You will be allocated an experienced beekeeper who is there to Guide and answer your questions, and demonstrate
You will open the bees, and all get a chance to handle them
The hives you are allocated will live or die by your hand so be gentle with them - and your Guide will do just that, guide
At the end of the session you will be expected to help clear up, just as you will need to in your own apiary.
