If you've ever wanted to keep bees, there's no better time to begin!
Whether you're keen to learn everything you need to know to get you started in hobby beekeeping, or simply extremely interested in the idea of keeping bees, this 1-day fun and interactive workshop will teach you the fascinating secrets of the honeybee and how to care for and keep bees in an environmentally friendly and sustainable way

Our Bee Keeping for Beginners workshop is lots of fun and packed full of all the essential information to leave you confident about one of the most enjoyable (and oldest!) past times. We'll have organic tea, coffee and refreshments ready for when you arrive and after a quick opportunity to say hello to your fellow workshop students, it's time for the fun to begin!...

This workshop is taught by Jez:
Jez heads up Bees for Business who install and maintain honeybee hives for businesses across England, offering a unique way for businesses to make a real and positive environmental impact for corporate social responsibility programmes. They also supply some of the finest artisan honey products to the most recognisable and iconic brands through their honey label, Bees & Co. Jez is an ethical beekeeper, passionate about encouraging more people to discover the rewarding and beneficial hobby of beekeeping. He has been privileged to have learnt from some of the most renowned bee farmers and as well as being an artisan beekeeper, is invited to talk worldwide on honeybees and beekeeping.

OUR COURSES ARE ALL-INCLUSIVE: We'll provide you with everything you need, including unlimited organic refreshments, a pizza lunch cooked in our outdoor, wood-fired pizza oven and bee keeping suits for the day. You'll leave with plenty of notes and resources, including a packet of free bee-friendly wild flower seeds and courtesy of BJ Sherriff, the leading supplier of beekeeping clothing, an exclusive 25% discount code for anything in their online store from beekeeper suits, gloves and equipment, too. Bring a pair of wellies or sturdy boots.
