BEGINNER BEEKEEPING WITH ACTIVGARDENS
We run beginner bee-keeping courses for people who would like get started and/ or join our Bee Team of community bee-keepers. Please register your interest and we will let you know when the next course is running.
If you would like to find out more about beekeeping, why not come along to our open sessions. This will give you excellent knowledge of bees and hands-on experience of how to keep them. Once you have gained confidence, you can borrow a suit and have a go yourself.
To get a feel what it takes to handle bees, you can observe the hive being opened and checked from the safety of our hide. If you like what you see, you can borrow a suit and shadow our bee-keepers. If you would like to learn more, you can participate in a course run by the local beekeeping association, and become part of our team. This means you will be on the priority list for a share in the honey!
To book your place at an open session, please contact Susannah on 07530 407302 or email firstname.lastname@example.org or call ActivLives on 01473 345350.

ADOPT – A – BEE
We have 400,000 bees in our hives – and they’re all up for adoption!
By adopting a bee, you’re enabling people of all abilities to get involved in beekeeping and the natural world, while improving and maintaining an urban area for the benefit of wildlife.
