ED wrote this for us “The beekeeping course was excellent and at £30 a total bargain. The first half of the day was guided by Dennis Stidder, who has been teaching bee keeping for over 30 years. He went through many of the basics and explained about the more traditional Langstroth  hives. He had many stories and experiences to share and half way through the day he opened up and showed us an active Langstroth hive.
methods, including the Warre hive and the Top-bar hive. We finished by
discussing the pros and cons of each technique and tying it all
together to the broader political context of the UK beekeeping scene
and the problems faced with the future of British bees. This was an
excellent introduction for any aspiring beekeeper. When starting to
learn about beekeeping it can be very difficult to decide what kind of
beekeeping you should practice. There is an overwhelming amount of
information on the internet and in books. The combination of a
traditional and natural beekeeper on this course gave us different
sides of the story and an opportunity for us to have our many
questions answered. After going on this course I am in the process of
building my first top-bar hive and hope to start keeping bees soon!”
