Beginners Lectures (Family) 2023
The beekeeping education system in Ireland is changing and consequently we are updating ours. From 2022, the beginners course will be in two parts. The first is the series of lectures that comprise an introduction to beekeeping. Our beginner's lectures for 2022 will again be online because of the COVID-19 pandemic.
The information provided in the lectures will act as the background for the practical course which will revolve around the use of a logbook that indicates that the student has learned a number of individual practical skills.
An introductory lecture will be on 16th February, with the course itself starting on 23rd February and 7 subsequent Wednesdays. The course will be delivered by a team of experienced beekeepers. At the end of the course, you will receive a certificate of completion.
The fee for a family (2 adults + children) is €135: the fee is waived for persons under 18 years old, but they must be accompanied by a responsible adult.
If you have any questions, please email the secretary.
