Hive Mind Beekeeping Course with Mark Riordan

This course provides its participants with a foundation in the practice of beekeeping and is open to all ages.

With the aid of classroom demonstrations, videos & photographs we will go through the lifecycle of the honeybee. Keeping bees may seem complicated but with guidance and learning it is a lesson worth learning. This ten-week course aims to equip our students with the knowledge and confidence to manage their own hive.

“The bee’s life is like a magic well: the more you draw from it, the more it fills with water’’.
