This workshop was an enlightening experience to be part of. Dr Jodie the bee scientists was able to distill her more than decade of research and experience into three days. This workshop would help everyone professional beekeepers, hobby beekeeper and experienced beekeepers. I would say this workshop would teach you how to build healthy genetics for your appiary. Prepare disease resistant bees I won't mind doing the course again Thanks Dr Jodie and Benedict
