Taking it further for those considering keeping bees. Small group tuition at an urban apiary, right in the heart of Henderson.

About this Event

Come and join Victoria and Peter on a visit to one of their hive locations in Henderson. Find out from a professional the 'ins and outs' of beekeeping and honey extraction.

PART 1

This is a chance to get more information and beekeeping theory plus get hands on if you’re seriously thinking about keeping bees.

Topics covered will include:

• What does a healthy hive look like?

• How do I know whether my space is OK for bees?

• Where to start with checking my beehive?

• Beekeeping gear and hiveware. What gear would I need to start with?

• What will my neighbours think if I get some bees?

• What are the legalities of owning bees?

• How to get further support?

ABOUT KAIWHENUA HONEY

WHAT TO BRING, ESSENTIAL!

Bee protection, see below. Bee suits can’t be shared, due to Covid restrictions.

  • HEAD PROTECTION Make in advance: Hard-brimmed hat draped with bug net or an old net curtain sewn and tied up. This should be long enough to cover neck.
  • BODY Loose clothing, long sleeves and trousers, covered shoes.
  • HANDS Do not bring used gloves, due to the risk of disease transmission to bees. Purchase new gloves. Alternatively, hide hands up sleeves/keep hands behind your back.
