Spring colours in the apiary

Spring is a busy time of year for our bees and the apiary team have been equally busy painting hives and buildings. Well done guys!

The Class of 2019

After attending weekly classes over winter to learn the theory of beekeeping, the class have now had the opportunity to gain practical experience at the associations apiary in Penllergaer. Weather permitting each week the students are taken through a year in the life of a beekeeper, learning hands on skills such as routine inspections, queen marking, disease control, apiary management and best of all honey extraction!
If you are interested in becoming a beekeeper please keep an eye on this web page for details of next years course.
