We hold a beginner’s class at Titchfield community centre during the winter. To ensure a good transition from theory to practice we run a training and
educational apiary at Manor Farm, Bursledon where we support the Annual Bees and Honey weekend at Manor Farm. We provide many demonstrations and
educational experiences of practical beekeeping. It has always been a fantastic weekend for us and the visitors of all ages who attend.

We have launched a Mentorship Programme for those who would like the support of one of our experienced beekeepers in their first years of beekeeping. Contact details for education and other information can be found on our website, or just come along to a meeting and introduce yourself.
