This workshop is suitable for beginners who have a basic understanding of the information covered in level 1. At present, over 225 students have participated in this workshop, some travelling each week from over 300km away to participate.
Advanced – Level 3 – Queen Bee Rearing and Managing Multiple Apiaries
This two-day (Saturdays only) workshop is for intermediate to advanced beekeepers who want the ability to rear their own queens for use all year round.
