Have you ever wanted to harvest honey from your own beehive? Would you like to collect beeswax to make candles or soap? Do you have a touch of ‘backyard biologist’ in your blood? If so, we might have just what you need – a series of workshops covering the fundamentals of beekeeping!

In Unit 3, Dan will demonstrate how to assemble a commercial beehive kit – from glue and nails to frames, foundation, and paint. He will also explain how to set up your hive.
