Improve Your Bees by Raising Your Own Queens

1 and 2 Day Courses in Various Locations

This course will cover many of the topics and techniques that will suit the "ordinary" beekeeper, with a large practical element that is easy to understand. It is intended to be fun, not intense technical information.

Who is it aimed at?
