Beginners’ Hands-on Beekeeping Course

27th October and 10th November 2018 (9am to 5pm)

Conducted by VAA Melbourne Section at the Abbotsford Convent and the adjoining Collingwood Children’s Farm apiary, 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 2019 will focus on beekeeping during summer, autumn and winter.

The cost of the course is $290 which includes course notes, a memory stick of beekeeping resources, a reference book (“BEE Agskills”, New South Wales Department of Primary Industries), and morning tea.
