Introduction to beekeeping in the city

Beekeeping is a wonderfully rewarding activity and it has an essential role in supporting wildlife and agricultural production. Even in the city you can plant fruit bushes or small crops and see them pollinated by bees, or keep bees yourself, if you have a garden and a good relationship with the neighbours.

Bees in the city have an easier life than out in the countryside, as there are slightly higher temperatures, an extended flowering season, fewer pesticides and a larger variety of plants and sources of nectar.

The next course this season starts on Wednesday 18th March @ 7.00pm.
