This course is intended to inform participants of what is involved should they wish to become beekeepers.

It includes:-

  • costs incurred
  • equipment required
  • sources of both bees and equipment
  • time required to manage honey bee colonies.

It may encourage or discourage those considering becoming beekeepers. Those that are encouraged should then enrol in a Basic Beekeeping Course run by a recognised organisation before acquiring equipment or bees.

Ted Scott will be delivering the course with more than 40 years experience.  During that time Ted has harvested more than 100lbs (50kg) of honey in each season.  He has also been successful showing honey winning trophies and blue ribbons at several honey shows.

In recent years Ted has been heavily involved with training new beekeepers in both theory and practise of beekeeping. As Education Secretary for his local association he gets great pleasure in being a mentor to both new and more experienced beekeepers offering his help when they are uncertain of how to proceed. He also gets pleasure in taking a portable hive into local schools and clubs and talking about bees.
