Beekeeping South Australia
I did it, attended the WEA Beekeeping for novices in Adelaide on 30 might 2015. The presenter was a local beekeeper and member of the Beekeepers Society of SA, Keith Clark.
Keith performed an excellent task of running all the way through the practicalities of beginning beekeeping, including covering essential but easily ignored questions like "How can I begin?", Why do I want to be a beekeeper? Have i obtained the real ability?, is there legislative demands?", what gear?, prices?, time? skills?, exactly how many hives?, where you should put them? getting bees?, removing honey, upkeep, some time bee stings. As well as the typical pests and diseases, evaluating an actual hive establish (sorry no bees inside classroom!).
Keith down played their knowledge, but in fact ended up being very capable in responding to our questions and left united states with all the saying 'if you may well ask 10 different beekeepers..."
Others benefit of attending had been satisfying lots of various other like minded brand new beekeepers maintain touching in the foreseeable future.
Overall a tremendously informative, of use and definitely worth the cash trip to a WEA short program.
But if you think you will find out all you need to by simply performing a-one day intro course, you're kidding yourself! Like every thing in life, keep understanding. My 105 year-old grandmother says 'if you are not mastering, then you definitely're most likely lifeless already!', and she is nonetheless alive!
