Winter and early spring are critical times in the bees’ year. This course is designed to help new beekeepers to prepare their colonies for these months, and thus minimalise losses.
Practical advice will be given on such topics as: adequate stores, hive preparation, protecting the colony, planting for forage, caring for the swarm, and early warning signs to look for.
Cost: £75 (£60 for Friends of the Natural Beekeeping Trust) to include refreshments. Lunch is on a “Bring and Share” basis and participants are asked to bring a contribution to share with the group. All catering provided by the Natural Beekeeping Trust will be vegetarian.
