Very informative and well presented. I now feel much more confident to get a hive and start to keep bees.

Was given this experience as a Christmas gift and enjoyed it a lot. Got an introduction to the humble bee and bee hives and how to set one up. Later in the day got to actually open a few hives up and look at the different types of bees and what to look out for in a hive. Great introduction, simple with enough hands on for the first time. Will do again once I am ready to set one up to refresh. Had a great day!

Really informative workshop with a good amount of hands on time. Benedict is highly knowledgeable (and friendly) and this makes the classroom part of the workshop as enjoyable as the part where you are out with the bees. By the end of the day I felt I had the skills and access to resources needed to start my own hive.
