INTRODUCTION COURSE TO BEEKEEPING

Do you fancy setting up 1, 2, 3, beehives in your garden to produce your own honey? Would you like to pollinate fruits and vegetables in your garden, or do you simply enjoy watching bees do their work and want to take care of them? Would you like first to check your abilities with bees and learn the basics before you start? The current environmental setting requires starting beekeeping with some basic knowledge and mastering adequate and precise movements.

Throughout this introduction course, Bruno who is a professional beekeeper, offers to people wishing to set their first hives and needing to acquire good basic knowledge, a two-day period during which they'll be totally immersed in the amazing world of bees. You'll have the opportunity to practice with two types of beehives (Warré and Dadant), enabling you to test your abilities and find out their differences.
