Natural Beekeeping Course in Castlemaine this Sunday and the following Sunday. Vacancies open:

Natural Beekeeping is simple, low cost and low effort – perfect for small-scale backyard beekeeeping. This workshop will provide the information and skills to get started.  It will be led by Warwick Bone from Perm-Apiculture and will have a special focus on the wellbeing of the bees, not just the size of the honey yield.

The course will run over two days. Practical elements will explore beekeeping equipment and the course will demonstrate typical hive manipulations. And naturally, there will be honey tasting!

Date: 31 August and 7 September (Sundays)

Time: 10am – 4pm (refreshments will be provided midmorning and BYO lunch)

Cost: $160 full, $120 concession. (Payment must be received prior to the start of the course to secure your place.)
