Well presented with a vast amount of knowledge, the day seemed to fly past and would recommend to anyone from those with an interest to those who keep bees and want to expand their knowledge.

In keeping with the "practical' title this is indeed a very useful course. It enabled us to have the insight to enthuse us to begin beekeeping and the confidence that it was doable. Albeit in the latter this is a significant and no doubt very rewarding undertaking. Well done to Benedict and Ashton the two very knowledgeable instructors. Thoroughly enjoyable day. Paul

Wonderful day at the delightful Edendale Farm. The day was packed full of information, and Benedict was very happy to answer everyone's questions. There is so much to learn about the bees, and this was a wonderful introduction. I really enjoyed the practical part, of seeing the hives in action, and seeing how to work the bees. A great day, which I thoroughly enjoyed. Many thanks indeed.
