Last Monday evening saw the start of a 5 week introductory beekeeping course. Kindly run by Ruth and Ian Homer for free (donations to Bees for Development encouraged) it attracted 9 interested people in various states of beekeeping readiness and commitment. About half, like Sally and me, were aiming to get bees this season others were taking it more slowly or just finding out a bit more.

This first session covered the natural history of the honey bee. Whilst the subject matter was serious and covered in braod detail, the evening was enjoyable with plenty of laughs and a few groans at Ian's jokes.
