Intro to Sustainable Beekeeping – This workshop is now FULLY BOOKED.
Where: Patchwork Gardens, 4649 Milburn Rd. Battersea
When: Sunday, April 29th
Rain Date: Sunday, May 6th
Come join dedicated amateur beekeeper Claude Tardiff and learn about the practice of sustainable beekeeping with Top Bar hives. Workshop activities will include maintenance of an existing hive, starting a new hive and extracting and eating fresh honey.
Due to the limited number of protective bee jackets available, the workshop will only be open to five (5) participants (unless you happen to own your own bee jacket, in which case you can come without using one of the 5 spots – please indicate you have your own jacket when you register!). Please bring a snack, and wear long pants and closed shoes. NOTE: This workshop is being offered at no cost to participants.
THIS WORKSHOP IS NOW FULLY BOOKED – unless you have your own bee jackets – in which case just email us to let us know you will be coming!
