This was an excellent course. Science and data, Benedict’s deep expertise and some hands on bee time. I thoroughly enjoyed it.

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!
