Backyard Beekeeping Workshop – Mayfield

St Andrew’s Church Hall
31 Church Street, Mayfield, NSW, 2304

Join us, Kelly and Anna, from Urban Hum to discover the amazing world of bees. This one-day beekeeping course will get you started on your journey to becoming a beekeeper. The course will take place in the grounds of St Andrew’s church in Mayfield East at Urban Hum’s Church Street Apiary.

Learn about bees and bee behaviour. Find out what type of hive suits you. Perfect if you already have a Flow Hive or if you are still choosing what will fit your needs. Learn the basic skills needed to care for your colony and the tools you will need. Look inside a working beehive. Experience honey extraction and taste honey from different hives.

The course will consist of a morning theoretical session with time for questions and answers. In the afternoon we will experience hands-on activities including wiring and waxing frames, honey extraction and suiting up to look inside a hive.

The course fee includes morning tea, a light lunch and the equipment you will need for the day.
Bookings and covered shoes essential.

Reviews from previous students:

I did the introduction to backyard beekeeping with Kelly and Anna. It was an awesome day learning all about bees and beekeeping. Their passion is infectious and I highly recommend spending the day with them. -Craig Gammell

I attended my beginner’s beekeeping course on Saturday. It was AWESOME!!!!
Kelly and Anna are extremely passionate about bees and their bio-security. I encourage everyone to go to an Urban Hum beginner course. Even if you don’t keep bees, it’s fascinating.
Can’t wait for the next workshop!!! – Ally Turnbull

We can’t wait to share our knowledge and love of bees with you. With the right skills and care, bees will be a productive and enjoyable addition to your family.

We hope to see you soon.
