If you came along to a taster session in 2017, or just want to start learning about beekeeping, then we offer a comprehensive training and membership package.
The package comprises:
- Beginners theory classes for new beekeepers, held as two afternoons sessions at Ashford Carbonell Village Hall in February and March
- An afternoon practical ‘starter’ at the Association Apiary near Ludlow in April.
- Mentoring advice through an active season with an experienced beekeeper
- An afternoon practical wrap-up session at the Apiary, probably in mid-September – date to be confirmed later in year.
- The BBKA ‘Guide to Beekeeping’ book
- Full Membership of the L&DBKA for one year
- BDI diseases insurance for 2 hives for one year
- Full Membership of the BBKA for a year, which includes 12 copies of the BBKA Magazine sent by post
- The fee for taking The Basic Assessment in a subsequent year, after you have kept bees for a full season, is also included
The whole package costs £139.00. But if you have previously paid to attend one of our Taster Sessions this is reduced to £129.00 .
