Have you ever thought about taking up Beekeeping, but just don't know where to start?!
This Beekeeping Course is based in The Massey Community Hub, 385 Don Buck Rd, Massey, West Auckland, New Zealand. Please join the waitlist if this is Out of Stock, once we have enough students we will schedule dates for the next course.
Well, here at kiwimana we are Beekeepers who want to help those interested in Bees and Beekeeping by providing this simple and informative starter course. It will give you a great overview of the ‘world of Beekeeping’, a start without Bees, so you can learn about Beekeeping and Bees ‘Hands-Off’. Suitable for those without Bees. Then an Apiary visit to meet the Bees.
