Beekeeping Workshop - 25 Feb 2017 9:00 AM

We had two very knowledgeable and passionate instructors which complemented each other well. One instructor taught us a great deal about the unusual and interesting lifecycle of the bees, while the other explained some of the practical aspects of beekeeping.

A very good introduction to beekeeping, Robert was full of information and conveyed it well and with much humour. Highly recommended.

Thank you for giving the opportunity to me to look back to the Beekeeping workshop. It has been a very good experience for me, because on one hand we got a lot of very interesting information about the bees and their live and on the other hand it has been very practical.We could see how to handle the bees with calmness, love and care and no need to be afraid and we also learned, how to make a wax frame. The instructors patiently answered all questions and created a warm, relaxed mood. I enjoyed the workshop very much. It was inspirational and if one wants to learn about bees or even wants to have an own bee hive I would recommend this workshop warmly. The price is worth it!
