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!”bumblebee on Mullein flower
