South East Herts Beekeepers Association

Introduction to Beekeeping Course

South East Herts Beekeepers Association run an Introduction to Beekeeping Course each year for those who maybe interested in beekeeping or want to find out about what it involves.

The course runs to a well established format and is delivered in an informal style where we encourage everyone to get involved.


You will try your hand at making up frames and have the chance to handle bees and well as finding out all about life in the hive.

Next Beginners Course Commences 27th March 2022

With COVID restrictions now easing we are pleased to announce that our next Introduction to Beekeeping Course will commence on Sunday 27th March at 2pm


If you would like to join us and learn all you need to know to get started in beekeeping we would be pleased to see you.
