Louth Beekeeping Beginners Course
We are keen to encourage new beekeepers and anyone interested to learn more about beekeeping.
The Louth District Beekeepers beginners course is full of practical and theory sessions. The course will set you on your way to having enough knowledge to flex your buzzing wings and head out on your own beekeeping adventure.
Louth District Beekeepers offer training both to new beekeepers and to experienced beekeepers alike. We run an introduction day (where we give you an introduction to the craft and what’s involved) followed by a full beginner’s course each spring.
The beginner’s course is based on the British Beekeeping Association’s materials and includes considerable practical training at our association apiary (beekeeping site) at Hallington.
