Experience a Day in the Life of a Beekeeper
This workshop will take you inside a working London beehive to discover the world of the honeybee and its management, demonstrate equipment required by a bee-keeper, and give an overview of the beekeeping year.
You might be toying with the idea of purchasing a beehive, but would like more guidance. We are ethical beekeepers and have a big passion for honeybees and the role they play in the environment.
Join us on a beekeeping experience to discover more about the exciting world of this most complex and productive insect, and enjoy a hands-on exploration inside a hive of honeybees at one of our Local Honey Man apiaries.
The experience will include:
- Handling live honeybees
- Inspecting the inside of a beehive
- Understanding how a beehive works
- The do’s and don’ts of beekeeping
- How can you help save the bees
Light refreshments will be provided
