Easy Buzzing Bee Course - runs monthly 

Beginner's beekeeping course for new beekeepers and hobbyists.

We run a bee course for beginners on a Saturday for a full day. Learners that do not have bee suits or jackets of their own MUST hire one of ours for the day and this is not included in the course fee.

Hire of a bee suit or jacket for the bee course is R100 extra for the day.

VENUE: Midrand Smallholding in President Park!

It includes:

  • Theory on beekeeping equipment
  • planning apiaries
  • harvesting honey
  • keeping bees
  • much more

 

We provide lunch.

After lunch:

Everyone puts their bee suits or jackets on before we start working with bees in three colonies on site at the venue.

Get involved as a hobbyist or begin a road to commercial bee farming, either way you need to get more knowledge and hands on experience. It's like a test drive before you buy!

For a full breakdown of the beginner beekeeping course please see the bee course outline below.

The full day beekeeping course includes a practical demonstration of working a bee hive as well as theory about beekeeping.

Beekeeping can be fun. Some people do it for leisure and free honey and others do it professionally. Either way it's still a great way to get outdoors, meet people and get closer to nature. Our beekeeping course includes an estimated 90-120 minutes inspecting a live hive.

It will be for a FULL Day. Starting at 8h00 until late in the afternoon. We will focus on as much hands-on theory as possible with at least an hour session of practical work at a hive.

The PRACTICAL BeeKeeping demo includes each learner removing a frame from a live bee hive and inspecting it. A search for the queen bee and description of comb, drone cells, larvae, eggs and internal workings of the hive. All learners participate in the practical exercise with a live bee hive.

We will be charging R850 for the course which includes the facilitation and tea and biscuits at the site. Please be sure you purchase necessary equipment such as a bee suit and gloves before coming on the workshop.

Or you can rent a bee suit and gloves for the day for an additional R100pp.

A minimum of 6 candidates is required to run the beekeeping course so be sure to bring a friend!
