Participants' comments in April 2013

"Great to have a perspective on bees that matches my own attitude to the environment."

"Clear, consistent message with good balance of facts, philosophy and practical."

"Finally feeling that here was a beekeeping place where I belonged. The tutors, all four of you, were brilliant, I never for one moment felt my questions were foolish or unnecessary."
