About this course
This one-day course is an opportunity for novice beekeepers to workshop any issues they may have as they head into winter. There'll also be an opportunity to harvest honey directly from a hive by spinning it from the honeycombs with centrifugal force. Each participant will take home a jar of extracted honey - a gift from the bees.
