The Urban Beehive is offering a one-day beginners’ beekeeping course covering the principles of backyard, urban and rooftop beekeeping. The aim is for participants to gain a basic knowledge of European honeybees and the methods of keeping them in an urban environment. Our urban beekeeping course is divided into two parts, you spend the morning learning the theory of beekeeping and the afternoon is spent hands on lighting smokers and opening beehives. You will get to handle bees and learn how to identify eggs, larvae, pollen and honey inside your hive.
We have Warre, Top Bar, Langstroth and Flow hives in our teaching apiary.
