Beginners’ Hands-on Beekeeping Course 15th and 29th October 2017 (9am to 5pm) Conducted by VAA Melbourne 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 2018 will focus on beekeeping during summer, autumn and winter. The cost of the course is $270 which includes course notes, a memory stick of beekeeping resources, a reference book (“BEE Agskills”, New South Wales Department of Primary Industries), a waxed wooden frame and morning tea.

We currently run Introduction To Bee-Centred (Natural) Beekeeping classes through our local Registered Training Organisation Castlemaine Continuing Education where we show you everything you need to begin your journey with these fascinating creatures and become a registered beekeeper yourself. The course includes, what is in our opinion, the most comprehensive how-to bee-centred beekeeping guide book available which you will take home to usher you through your beekeeping journey. Ongoing support will also be available directly from Daniel BeeShepherd and you will be invited to join an online community of like-minded beekeepers who are extremely supportive and helpful.
