We are approaching the half way point through our annual course for new beekeepers. So far students have covered the basics and are gradually building their knowledge and understanding … and most importantly, are beginning to get to know other folk who could be helpful bee buddies in the future.
Everyone has had an opportunity to build a super frame … and taken it home to share with family and friends … the initial step towards their first hive!
In our latest session we considered the importance of pollen and forage. The WDBKA microscopy equipment was available for students to have a closer look.
