Natural 'Bee Friendly' Beekeeping Day at Quirky Workshops @ Greystoke Cycle Cafe
There is a real upsurge of interest in Natural Beekeeping, as the approach puts the needs of bees before all else by working with their natural behaviour. Many of us recognise the huge importance of bees for our environment, food and future, and yet bee colonies around the world are succumbing to disease and collapse.
David Heaf- author of 'The Bee Friendly BeeKeeper' is a renowned expert and enthusiast for this approach which uses techniques from 100 years ago and advocates that there is growing evidence that working with natural rhythms and seasons can make a tangible difference to the health of the hive.”
This is ideal both for those considering keeping bees for the first time and for existing beekeepers interested in a more hands-off and organic approach.
This long one-day Beginners’ beekeeping course run by Dr David Heaf will equip people to start keeping bees from scratch.
Natural Beekeeping offers many benefits. It is less time consuming, involves lower costs, is sustainable, chemical-free and has a lower impact. It is perfect for those who lead busy lives but would like to keep bees, doing their bit for the environment, with honey as a bonus.
£105 incl lovely 2 course lunch and refreshments (or £80 if used as an add-on day to our mainstream 2 day beekeeping weekend course in March or April. Please see website for details).
