Mini Course Video Packed with
What Exactly makes up the 35 Minutes?
REAL Footage from a Beekeeping Course
We recorded a bee course in 2010 and had it professionally edited to pack 35 minutes full of beekeeping secrets and bee info! This Mini Bee Course video was developed purely to get you to start beekeeping without spending big budget on travel costs to a bee course!
If you are in an outlying region far from the city where a traditional bee course event is likely to take place, then you would probably pay as much for the travel costs than you would for the bee course. That would certainly be the case with the low fee we charge for our bee course.
Although we hold monthly bee courses at a farm in Gauteng Province, South Africa. There are many potential beekeepers that cannot come to the bee course we hold due to distances that would need to be covered. Some of these beginner beekeepers would travel by car for over 8 hours to get to us! That's the same as TWO tanks of GAS alone...
So, we came up with the idea of making a Mini Course on video packed with real footage of our beekeeping course. We had it edited by a professional and finally ended up with 35 minutes of action packed bee info! Any longer and the download files would be way too big to access over the net.
OVER 20 MINUTES OF LIVE DEMO
The main feature of our beekeeping course is that it involves an hour or so of LIVE HIVE DEMO where student beekeepers put their protective clothing on and we open a bee hive. It's fantastic!
Many beekeepers and you included, could read up about keeping bees quite easily. You could do so by buying Beekeeping in South Africa, or our Practical Beekeeping bee book and go over the bee info inside. We found that beginner beekeepers want to WORK WITH BEES before they start beekeeping!
So, we incorporated a special time slot for doing a LIVE HIVE DEMO on our bee course of about 60 minutes! What you get on the Beekeeping Mini Course Video is edited sections of exactly what we did on a bee course in 2010! It's actually pretty great because we get beginner beekeepers to help us with our Hive management and work with the bees!! :)
We open a bee hive and inspect it while recording footage for you! We check the frames for honey comb, queen cells, honey cells and pests! All along you also experience comments by the trainer who has over 20 years of beekeeping experience and was manager of the South African Beekeeping Industry Organisation for many years. Discover the bees at work inside a working bee hive!
