Introductory course

The Dunedin Beekeepers club offers an introductory course for those new to beekeeping. The course consists of two 4 hour sessions. The first session for 2021 is theory on honey bees and beekeeping held at the Malcam rooms, 45 Maori Road, Dunedin on Saturday 18 September. The second is a practical demonstration, held at Murray Rixon’s apiary on the Taieri, where participants are able to view inside a hive and learn the basics of how to care for a colony. This is to be held on Sunday 19 September with the reserve days the following weekend if the weather is unsuitable.  The club has a limited number of bee suits that may be borrowed for the practical session.
