Sampler Course Sept 4, 2016

This 3 hour introductory “Sampler” course will overview what keeping bees and a hive entails.

How to go about getting bees, what do you need, can I have a hive in my back yard, how do I get assistance, do I really need all the equipment or can I borrow some from the GCABS Club?
This general introduction will assist people who think they may be interested in starting Bee Keeping to find out a little more of what it involves and will help inform their decision on whether to enrol in our subsequent “Beginning Bee Keeping Course” to be offered on 15 & 16 October.
Sampler Course costs $30 for 3 hours and includes a take home copy of the NSW Department of Primary Industries: Bee Agskills A Practical Guide
