Practical Beekeeping Courses, Spring & Summer 2019

Practical Beekeeping Courses in 2019 – Taster, Six-week course, Mentoring 

Would you like to learn how to keep bees in your garden or on your allotment? Beverley Beekeepers hold courses to teach you do just this.

Our six-week course will start on Thursday May 30 at 18.30 and continue each Thursday until July 4. It will be held at our Beverley apiary and cost £60 to non-members. This is a practical beekeeping course and will cover the basics of beekeeping. Full protective clothing will be provided as well as course notes. Each session will last about two hours.

Not sure beekeeping is for you? For anyone who thinks they may be interested in beekeeping but would like the opportunity to see inside a beehive just to make sure, we are planning a Taster Session on Saturday May 11, starting at 10.30 at our Beverley apiary. There will be plenty of opportunities to ask our trainers on all aspects of beekeeping. The session should last between one and two hours. Cost is £10. Protective clothing will be provided. If, after this, you are keen to pursue beekeeping you can then book the six-week course.

If you would like to book a place on the six-week course, the taster session or both, please contact Stewart Beckett at
