Our Beekeeping Taster sessions are held at the Teaching Apiary, located near Aldringham. We offer one session each month in March, April and May. The sessions are held on a Saturday and usually last between 1-2 hours.
We have protective beekeeping suits for you to wear and there is ample parking.
The taster sessions are led by experienced beekeepers and others, who will be available to answer any questions.
At the sessions you will see inside a hive, or two and, depending on the temperament of the colony, may be able to hold a frame or two. You will see worker bees, drone bees, play 'spot the Queen', eggs, larvae capped brood.
You may even see a bee emerging from its cell.
