Excellent presentation and information clearly expressed. Detail and extent of information exceeded expectations. The full working models and section of brood hive with worker and drone bees on display was amazing. Would certainly recommend this course at Bee Sustainable for interested and enthusiastic groups.

We learnt the art of bee keeping. The highlight was learning about the life cycle and behaviour of bees and watching bees go about their business via Rob's glass bee box.
