We are pleased to announce a Hive Building Workshop, in a face-to face format, outside, in a contactless manner, at 1pm-4pm, on Sunday 22 November 2020.
The venue is to be announced (while we work through the first few days and weeks of opening the space up to the public and ensure that this is not a false start!).
The course includes all the equipment you will need to start beekeeping this season (but does not include bees!).
The hive materials will be pre-drilled, so all you will need is some screwdrivers, a hammer and PVA glue.
The materials are the same as what we use when beekeeping and we have specified the best veils and smokers: Lega, from Italy (there is nothing worse than a bad smoker that dies half way through an inspection!).
The kit-of-parts includes:
Lega box veil Lega bee smoker Hive lid + vents Ideal box + 8 frames Deep box + 8 frames Hive base Wax foundation strips Emlock Hive tool Bee brush Screws.
The price is $485 plus booking fee.
If you purchase a place in this workshop, you will be prioritised for a swarm catching experience, to allow you to start beekeeping this season. A separate email will be sent to workshop attendees regarding this.
Please also see the Terms and Conditions at the foot of this message.
We hope that this is enough information to get you excited!
