The WDBKA annual course for new Beekeepers is well underway. Our group of 25 keen students have completed the 7 week theory part of the programme and are currently enjoying visits to the Netherbury Apiary. In spite of the mixed weather we have been able to carry out the first two practical sessions.
The course started at the end of January and a team of tutors drawn from the WDBKA Membership have delivered a varied, entertaining introduction to the craft. Students have completed a basic introduction to Beekeeping … they have made up frames, learnt to identify Varroa and built their knowledge from the regular weekly input.
