Hi Folks

I have been asked by an outdoor education centre if I would be interested in putting together a beekeeping course for them. I have said that if I did it would be based around top bar hive beekeeping and they are happy with that.
I am just trying to decide if there is time to get information out for something this year or to go with next year now. Just as a straw pole is there any interests in courses in this location?

I've seen most interest from April to October. Potential beekeepers seem to hibernate...😀

Good luck.

I think I will perhaps look at doing a one day in the first instance in mid-august. I don't think this will clash with anyone elses' courses.

In the future, there is the option for doing residential at this centre with both dorms and camping available.

Yes I would be interested. Great to meet up with like minded people and I'm keen to learn, I'm also fairly local being in Hartlepool.

I am trying to lock in the 13th August. It is just whether it is too short notice for booking. I would really like to get it going though. I already have the content shorted so it is just the booking now. Quite excited.

Hi Folks

I am have been given a date of the 13th August for a day training course on Top Bar beekeeping. This is pitched to be suitable for new beekeepers or those already using other hive types (so beginner to intermediate).
Lunch is provided and some course material will be given to take away.

More info:

Conserving wild bees

Research suggests that bumble bee boxes have a very low success rate in actually attracting bees into them. We find that if you create an environment where first of all you can attract mice inside, such as a pile of stones, a drystone wall, paving slabs with intentionally made cavities underneath, this will increase the success rate.

Most bumble bee species need a dry space about the size a football, with a narrow entrance tunnel approximately 2cm in diameter and 20 cm long. Most species nest underground along the base of a linear feature such as a hedge or wall. Sites need to be sheltered and out of direct sunlight.

There is a spectacular display of wild bee hotels here
