  1. 5 out of 5

    An excellent course for a beginner. I have no experience with bees and now feel confident enough to begin keeping bees. Margaret delivers the course in a carefully structured manner, answering any queries as she goes. The course ends with a very good apiary visit, allowing you to look inside the hives and identify aspects which have been discussed earlier in the course.
    Both Gary and Margaret are very nice people who are more than happy to help I couldn’t recommend this course highly enough 🙂
