This is a full day workshop, but participants can chose to attend half the day.
The morning session is a theoretical introduction to beekeeping in a low maintenance and bee-friendly way. Using the top bar hive the bees can build beautiful, natural comb with minimal interference.
In the afternoon we will inspect and harvest honey from a live top bar bee hive, strain the honey and make beeswax candles. Participants will take a jar of honey home.
The workshop is designed for people who have no background in beekeeping. Intermediate and experienced beekeepers interested in learning about alternative beekeeping will find value too. It's full of interesting and humorous information and plenty of interactivity.
Vegetarian lunch provided.
Half day (theory or practical): $65
Full day (theory & practical): $125
