A unique beekeeping course, teaching a completely different style and approach to standard conventional Beekeeping.

Are you ready to plunge into Natural Beekeeping?

Come and join Adrian Iodice for a fascinating and informative day-long course learning natural, organic, biodynamic, bee-centric Bee-care using Kenyan Top Bar beehives.

You will leave with the confidence to start caring for a Bee colony of your own.

What you will Learn

You will learn about the intimate life of a Honey Bee colony, how to catch and relocate a swarm and the fundamentals to start-up and manage a colony of your own

We will discuss a number of different beehives – the pros and cons of them all, as well as the types of equipment you will need to catch swarms and to manage your hives.
