Learn Beekeeping Basics with my Online Workshop
Having a hive in your backyard would not only be good for the planet, but it would also get you out of the house, connecting with nature, and giving back to the earth in a meaningful way.
There is something about Beekeeping that helps you de-stress and be a happier version of you!
Every beekeeper knows the unbeatable comfort of quietly observing the comings and goings of the hive. Many find it the most relaxing and enjoyable activity of their day.
You probably already know that all the tastiest foods rely on bees for pollination — citrus, almonds, berries, stone fruits, apples, pears, cucumbers, watermelons, about 70% of the crops we eat. Imagine helping these fascinating pollinators thrive in your own backyard. You’ll not only help your own garden but that of your neighbors too!
You might already know that honey is one of the most adulterated food products in the world! Much of the honey products conveniently available in our shops and supermarkets have been manipulated for the benefit of corporate profits. But imagine tasting and sharing with your family and friends your very own pure honey harvest. Knowing you are sharing one of nature’s true superfoods!
Getting into beekeeping is exciting, but you quickly realise there is a lot to learn. Investing in your knowledge and confidence as a Beekeeper is as important as buying a beehive or hive tool.
Join Nathan in this online workshop as we take you behind the scenes of what it's like to be a Backyard Beekeeper and learn about some of the considerations to get started yourself in this fascinating hobby.
