Introductory Beekeeping Course
June 3rd @ 9:30 am – 4:30 pm
This is an introductory beekeeping course for anyone considering taking up beekeeping or who wishes to learn more about honey bees. We’ll meet in our training apiary near Elgin for a presentation then, after lunch, you will meet the bees. We will lend you a bee suit and gloves and show you the fascinating world inside a hive of bees, and teach you the basics of handling them.
In the course you will learn about the life history of the honeybee and find out what is required to get you started as a beekeeper.
We ask for a donation of £30 for the course and this includes access to our course hand outs, refreshments during the day, a soup and sandwich lunch and the use of the protective clothing when we meet for the demonstrations in the apiary.
Numbers for the introductory beekeeping course are restricted to 12 participants, so early booking is recommended.
Moray Beekeepers Association was established in 1919. We are a growing number of mostly amateur beekeepers located in North East Scotland, with the association being based in Moray.
MBA exists to promote and foster an interest in the study, development and practice of beekeeping and to protect and conserve the future of the honeybee in Moray and Scotland.
