Introduction to Beekeeping Course

Course is now full

Woodend Bee-Friendly Society is offering an Introduction to beekeeping course on Tuesdays 13th and 20th March, 7-9.30pm, at the Woodend Community Centre. The course will be taught by Jim Sansom, aided by some members of the WBFS leadership team.

The course will cover the basics of bee physiology and needs, and explore the various tasks that beekeepers must undertake to ensure that bees are healthy and flourish. There will be a practical counterpart to this course to be held in October.

The cost of the course is $20, payable on the first night, and is open to all members of the Macedon Ranges Sustainability Group. If you are not yet a member of the Macedon Ranges Sustainability Group you can register online (for $25 individual or $30 family per year) at

If you were registered as a member last year you can renew your membership, if required, at

Make sure that you click on Woodend Bee-Friendly Society in the list of action groups on the online form.

Once you are sure that you are registered as a member of MRSG please send an email to with your full name and phone number notifying me of your intention to participate in the course.

The course will have a limited intake of 15 to 20 participants so it will be a case of first in; first served.
