ASPIRING and hobby beekeepers can hone their skills at a new series of hands-on workshops at Bee School by Beechworth Honey.

A team with extensive beekeeping experience will deliver the workshops from September until January.

Bee Talks will be held on weekends and in the school holidays.

Participants can join a seasonal talk at the hive in the Bee Cause Garden to learn about bees, the workings of a hive, how honey is made and to gain an insight into beekeeping from 11.30am. 

Cooking School returns for the weekends and school holidays.

Participants can watch cooking demonstrations, including recipes and tastings, from 2pm.

The reopening of Bee School coincides with Beechworth Honey’s launch of its Bee Cause social impact initiative in Australia: beecauseaustralia.com.au

The Bee Cause initiative calls on Australians to support Australia’s honeybees and protect the two-thirds of produce they pollinate.
