Beginner's Course at The Middlewood Trust

Saturday 29th/Sunday 30th September 2018

Approx 10:00am to 5:00pm each day

Booking details to follow soon


The course is aimed at those with no previous knowledge of honeybees or beekeeping. You should leave with enough knowledge and confidence to set up a top-bar hive, populate it with bees and care for them throughout their first season with you. It is a simple, practical way to have healthy and happy bees in your garden, with the possibility of your own honey harvest, but without the cost and complications associated with conventional beekeeping.


Over the weekend we will discuss:

  • Principles of Natural Beekeeping
  • Introducing bees
  • Life cycle of the colony
  • Hints and tips to help you build your top-bar hive
  • Baiting a hive
  • Basic swarm catching
  • Feeding
  • Observation
  • Pests, diseases and the role of the Bee Inspector
