Last year the club ran a course for beginner beekeepers which proved very popular, so it will be repeated again this year. The course will consist of five x two-hour indoor sessions, plus one practical session at the Club's hives at Chartwell.
The indoor sessions will be held at the Johnsonville Community Centre, Room One (main entrance off Frankmoore Ave). The first session will be 7:30pm to 9:30pm on Mon 4 Sept. Subsequent sessions will be held on each of the following four Monday evenings (11th, 18th, 25th Sep and 2nd Oct). There will be a limit of 20 people accepted for this course.
Payment of the course fee of $200, covering course tuition and a workbook, is required in advance. Payment should be made by Internet banking to Club's bank account 031534-0009311-00, showing course participant's name.
If you are not already a club member, then club membership will need to be completed before your application to attend the course can be accepted.
