The Dean Forest Beekeepers Introductory Beekeeping Course provides an excellent taster experience of beekeeping, and those who join the association can build on it by attending weekly sessions at our apiary.

The one day course is led by experienced beekeepers and all protective equipment is provided as well as lunch and refreshments.

The morning theory session provides an overview of what is involved in keeping bees in terms of their needs, necessary equipment, and the activities you’ll need to complete as a beekeeper.  The afternoon practical session provides you with the chance to open a hive in small groups and experience handling the bees led by an experienced beekeeper.
