Introduction to Beekeeping

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 .
