Victorian Apiarists' Association

We can help you

The Victorian Apiarists' Association can help all beekeepers regardless of how many bee hives they own.

Whether you are a hobbyist beekeeper with one hive in the backyard, a semi-commercial beekeeper wishing to take the next step towards becoming fully financially dependent on beekeeping, or a full time commercial beekeeper - we can help you.

Beginners Hands-on Beekeeping Course

Sunday 6th October and Sunday 20th October 2019 (9am to 5pm)

Conducted by VAA Melbourne Section at the Collingwood Children’s Farm and its apiary, central Melbourne.

The course is designed to provide new or prospective beekeepers (including those with Flow Hives) with the necessary knowledge and practical skills to successfully manage a beehive throughout a beekeeping season, and particularly in springtime. Subsequent courses in February and March 2020 will focus on beekeeping during summer, autumn and winter.

The cost of the course is $300 which includes course notes, a memory stick of beekeeping resources, a reference book (“BEE Agskills”, New South Wales Department of Primary Industries), and morning and afternoon tea.
