Feedback from two Conwy Beekeepers’ members 17/08/2020…
“The course was absolutely superb. Dafydd trained as a biologist to doctoral level & is a qualified teacher. So his approach to give budding beekeepers is to teach only the essential background facts, progressing to practical work using a dummy populated (virtual) hive, followed by practical demonstration of hive inspection. Second day more classroom aspects reinforcing on dummy hive, before we two students made practical live inspections in turn. More practical advice on feeding, disease control & choices of equipment rounded it off, in lovely surroundings”.😄
