    An excellent course for new beekeepers who have gotten a hive through the winter and want to know what to do next. Personal help for indicidual circumstances.

    Highly recommended for all new beekeepers. Excellent learning about SPACE MANAGEMENT through all the seasons from someone who truly understand natural bee behaviour. Taylor made advice helps one understand where to improve and become a better beek. My hive populations have exploded in Spring, but now I’m feeling much more in control in ensuring I provide optimum digs.
