Autumn Beekeeping Taster

02 September 2018 – Beekeeping Taster

The local Association runs biannual taster sessions for anyone interested in peering into the world of beekeeping. It is just over half a day of what seems like a crash course into the buzz. Well, an introductory crash course…


As a volunteer I was tasked to lead a group through the opening of a hive and inspecting it. It was such a fantastic feeling, being able to share my excitement and love for these creatures with others. I encouraged them to handle frames and to look closely at the activities in and around the hive. By the end of the experience, most delegates were observing the ins and outs of the colony without any prompts and chatting amongst themselves. It sounds to me like they might have caught the bug. 🙂
