This course is designed for people who have either attended the Introductory course and would like more information, or those who already keep bees and need to understand more advanced management techniques and methods, but within the ethical/sustainable framework.
This course is also aimed at those who have been keeping bees conventionally but would like to understand a more bee-centred approach. There will be an assumption that you are familiar with beekeeping principles and terminology, but this is a chance to discuss individual issues and share experiences if you would like to participate. Or just listen!
