Courses

My courses are modular, and are suitable for people who would like to keep bees, or are already keeping them. I also run a mentoring service for people who would prefer to have help and advice at their home regarding their bees.

All courses are held at my farm cottage in rural East Sussex – do get in touch for detailed directions .

Courses are very popular as presents: if you would like a bespoke course for an individual, a couple, or a group, please email me at the above address to discuss. I bake a cake of your choosing and we can run the course on a day and at a time to suit you. Below are a couple of flyers for the event for you to print off and give to the recipient, but let me know if you’d like a bespoke voucher.
